  DIMOS SKOULAKIS (1939-2014)

Born in Athens, Dimos Skoulakis studied painting with Panos Sarafianos (1956-1957) and later at the School of Fine Arts with Yannis Moralis and Yiorgos Mavroidis (1960-1965).  He completed his studies with stage scenery by Vassilis Vassiliadis (1963-1965).  In 1968-1969 he traveled to North and South America and Europe (Paris, London, West Berlin), where he had the opportunity to study the classic works of great masters of the European Art and to come in immediate contact with the contemporary art movements and especially those of pop-art and critical realism.  He had his first solo exhibition in Athens (1981), but had participated, already since 1961, to a series of group shows.  The human figure is paramount in his hyperrealist work.  Dimos Skoulakis passed away in Athens (2014).
