A Greek artist born in 1935, Fassianos studied painting at the studio of Yannis Moralis, a Greek painter who was prominent in the Thirties. In 1962, Fassianos got a scholarship to attend the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. One can recognize his paintings, which reflect the influence of his native country, from their massive figures with flowing heads of hair, often shown in profile, and their monochrome treatment.
One of Greece's most prominent artists, Fassianos produces work that is moving as well as fascinating; despite the seeming naivety of his images, the artist challenges today's world by taking inspiration from the past. Featured in exhibitions at galleries worldwide, he not only paints in oils but also does prints, drawings and sculpture, and has enjoyed a long career that has brought him international recognition.
A maverick that does not belong to any particular current, Fassianos continues to depict our world and his world with as much joy and energy as ever.
He has lived 35 years in Paris and today shares his time between Athens and Paris and the many places his exhibitions takes him to.
