Items corresponding to Contemporary Art - Works on paper - Alekos Fassianos

Alekos Fassianos (1935) Alekos Fassianos is a Greek painter, who was born in Athens in 1935. He started learning violon, and then wen to the Fine Art Accademy of Athens from 1956 to 1960, in Yiánnis Móralis' studio. In 1962, he got a scholarship from the french government, and moved to Paris to continue his studies. Fassianos personal style was shaped in the 60s. He draws his subjects from Greek myths, Fayum portraits, Byzantine icons and the shadow theatre. His paintings are also characterised by motion which is emphasized by the hair or cloth waving in the breeze. In his artistic maturity his figures are known for their voluptuousness and the luminosity of the color he uses to highlight the sensuality and the immense pleasure of everyday life. This is probably less true of his early works. His works from the 1960s were made in the expressionist style and his figures are more grotesque. His works are visible in several mueums, including the Museum of contemporary art of Goulandris, on the Andros Island.
