Alekos Fassianos

Born in 1935 - Greece


Born in Athens in 1935, Alekos Fassianos is a Greek painter. A former student of the School of Fine Arts of Athens, the artist continued his studies in Paris thanks to a scholarship granted to him by the French government from 1960 to 1963.When he came back to his hometown he was removed by the dictatorship of 1967.
Paris facilitated his entry to the circle of personages of the cultural scene of that time of 1960 to 1963. Louis Aragon analyzes his work, and the former director of Villa Médicis, Jean-Marie Drot observed his work in the piece "Mythological voluptuousness".

He devoted himself to lithography when he arrived in Paris. His works resemble tales since he used motifs from mythology and our modern world. His tales converge around the subject of the Mediterranean in ocher and bluish shades. The critic Gérard Xuriguera said: "His opulent Venus, bathed by the Mediterranean sun, speaks to us of its country, of the touching casualness of a peaceful and joyful existence that escapes in the marvelous."

In 1966 he started succeding, he exhibited his work at the Facchetti Gallery in New York. After that, he had several exhibitions, particularly in New York, Tokyo, Stockholm, and especially in Paris, he exhibited as well in the biennales in Venice and São Paulo.
