  YANNIS MIGADIS (1926-2017)

Born at Heraklion (Crete), Yannis Migadis studied painting at the School of Fine Arts, Athens (1945-1951) with Costas Parthenis and stage scenery and costume design at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.  He also took free lance lessons in history of art, archeology, architecture and aesthetics at "Athenaeum".  He had his first solo exhibition in Athens (1954).  Other one-man and group shows in Greece and abroad followed as well.  Together with painting he was as well engaged in stage scenery designing, theatre and Greek and foreign cinema.  He has also painted frescos and has illustrated books, calendars and magazines and published a series of articles on literary and art magazines too.  Starting from an expressionist stage scenery like style, his work has a distinct Greek air of lyric realism.  Yannis Migadis passed away in Athens (2017).
