Biography

Alekos Fassianos, a Greek painter born in Athens on December 13, 1935, and who passed away on January 16, 2022, was internationally renowned for his figurative paintings that mythologically represented the contemporary world.

Fassianos studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts from 1956 to 1960, under Yiannis Moralis, before moving to Paris from 1960 to 1963 to study lithography at the National School of Fine Arts.

There, he met artists and writers who influenced the era. Louis Aragon commented on his works, and Jean-Marie Drot later dedicated a monograph to him titled "La Volupté mythologique." Fassianos created stage sets for major classical and modern works, and simultaneously developed his own theater of shadows and forms derived from his pictorial research, which he presented at the Centre Georges-Pompidou's Spoken Review in 1983.

He produced many collectors' books (ed. A. Biren and Fata Morgana) that are sought after today. He exhibited in galleries such as Paul Facchetti's and Alexandre Iolas's in Paris, in Athens, and throughout Europe, and later in Tokyo, New York, Stockholm, Malmö (Sweden), and at biennials in São Paulo, Venice, Berlin, and Australia (Melbourne, in 2011).

France and Paris remained his second homeland, where he regularly exhibited his new works.

Alekos Fassianos was extremely popular in Greece, and some of his works are displayed in public places: two large murals titled "The Myth of My Neighborhood" can be seen at the Metaxourgeio metro station in Athens. A sculpture is located in front of the Saint Irene Orthodox Church in Athens, and a giant vertical fresco is visible in the lobby of the Electra Metropolis Hotel in Athens.
