Alekos Fassianos was born in Athens in 1935. He studied in the Athens School of Fine Arts and then went to Paris on a scholarship to continue his studies on lithography. His works have been displayed in the major museums and galleries of the world. Apart from a painter, Fassianos is also a writer, a poet and a stage-designer. His paintings are characterized by slight motion, bright colours and sensuality. He usually gets inspired from tales, figures of shadow theatre and everyday life.
Να σ’ αγναντεύω, θάλασσα, να μη χορταίνω, απ’ το βουνό ψηλά στρωτήν και καταγάλανη και μέσα να πλουταίνω απ’ τα “μαλάματα (το μάλαμα):| τα χρυσάφια, τα χρυσαφένια χρώματα”μαλάματά* σου τα πολλά.
