Born at Aigion (Peloponnese), Spiros Kritikos initially studied Byzantine hagiography with Yannis Vassilopoulos.  He later studied at the School of Fine Arts, Athens (1981-1986) painting with Yannis Moralis and Dimitris Mitaras and history of art with Marina Lambraki-Plaka.  With a scholarship he moved to Paris (1987-1990), where he continued his studies at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts with Vladimir Velicovic and Henri Cueco, as well as at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs with Denis Rival.  He had his first one-man exhibition in Athens (1989).  Other solo and group shows in Greece and abroad followed as well.  Objectivity in harmony with the optical illusion (trompe-l'oeil) are dominant in his work together with a distinct reference to the Flemish School.  He lives and works in Athens.
