  ALECOS FASSIANOS (1935)

Born in Athens, Alecos Fassianos studied at the School of Fine Arts (1953-1960) with Yannis Moralis.  With a scholarship by the French government he later moved to Paris where he studied lithography by Pierre-Eugène Clairin and Georges Dayez at the École Nationale des Beaux Arts (1960-1963).  He had his first one-man exhibition in Athens (1957).  Many other solo and group shows followed both in Athens and abroad.  He has also designed stage scenery and illustrated art books of renown Greek and foreign poets and has designed Greek stamps among which one of the issues for the Olympic Games in Athens (2004).  His work finds itself  between expressionism and surrealism with an intense naive and Greek character.  He lives and works in Athens and Paris.
