Loudovikos was born in Anoghia, on the foot of mt. Psiloritis, Crete. His childhood, full of domestic chores, was a tough one. He was helping his family as a shepherd; transporting cheese and lumber from the mountain back to his village was one of his daily duties. However, Loudovikos was into painting and this hobby helped him to escape his daily routine, make some money and travel throughout Europe.
