Christos Tolera

By the age of 17 Christos Tolera had already been photographed for the Evening Standard, The Face and I.D. magazine, well on his way to becoming a leading light in London's burgeoning underground club scene.
Aged 19 he appeared on the cover of The Face as one of the singers in the then uber-fashionable jazz-latin dance act Blue Rondo A La Turk.
Alongside his music career Christos began to model in fashion shows and did editorial work for all the major fashion magazines.

Throughout the 1980's Christos continued to perform and appeared in videos for Spandau Ballet(To Cut A long Story Short), Sade (When Am I Gonna Make A Living?), Eurythmics (Wide Eyed Girl), Bananarama (Preacherman), Holly Johnson (Americanos), Terence Trent D'Arby (SignYour Name), Michael Jackson (Give In To Me) and many more.
In 2000 Christos went back into education and came away with a first class honours degree in fine Art in 2003.
