Born in Athens, Vassilis Kypreos studied at the School of Fine Arts (1958-1962) with Yannis Moralis.  He had his first one-man exhibition in Athens (1964) and had shown his work in many solo and group exhibitions both in Greece and abroad.  He had been awarded 1st Prizes at the 1st and 2nd Pan-Hellenic Youth Exhibitions (Athens 1961 and 1962) and at the exhibition "Jeunes Peintres du Monde" in Paris (1961).  He was assistant (for architecture) at the Polytechnic School of Athens (1966-1968 and 1974-1979) and had taught painting and history of ancient Greek art at the Program for American students "Study in Greece".  He often traveled and had lived and worked at different intervals in New York, Paris, Antibes and London.  Elements of objectivity, abstract and surrealism coexist in his work in a dreamy and magic space.  He lived and worked in Athens and the Island of Patmos. Vassilis Kypreos passed away in Athens (2021).
