  YANNIS KOURAKIS (1955-1993)

Born at Chania (Crete), Yannis Kourakis studied painting and history of art at the Ruskin School of Art in Oxford (1973-1974) and the University of Leeds (1974-1978).  He continued his studies at the University of London (1978-1981), where he specialized on art teaching, having at the same time taught history of art, design and painting at the Amersham College of Art.  He had his first one-man exhibition in London (1980).  A series of other solo and group shows followed both in Greece and abroad, including his participation to the Biennale of Alexandria.  A combination of descriptive and abstract expressionim, his work moves between the search and its refutation.  Yannis Kourakis passed away suddenly in Athens (1993).
