Born in Athens, Greece, 1921. Receiving his education at the E.O.N. Art School, he was awarded first prize for the Attica Messagion Competition.

" He continued exhibiting his artwork in competitions all over Greece and was met with much enthusiasm from the public. However, after the Military Junta of 1967, he was told he could either be a banker or an artist, not both! His love of painting led him to leave the bank and pursue a career in art. In 1969, he packed up his family along with 240 paintings and came to the United States to fulfill his American dream. And that he did. Sideris passed away in 2014 in Readington Township, New Jersey.
