With great sadness, an unforgettable artist, the Greek painter Alekos Fassianos passed away on Sunday (January 16, 2022) at the age of 87. We offer our deepest sympathies to him and his loved ones on these hard days.

The heartbreaking news was first announced by Greek News Agenda in a statement on Twitter, writing, “Saying goodbye to the great Greek artist Alekos #Fassianos, who passed away tonight at the age of 87… R.I.P.”

According to official sources, Alekos Fassianos lost his life in his home after a long illness. Fassianos leaves behind his wife, Mariza, and two daughters.

Born in Athens on December 13, 1935, Alekos Fassianos (Greek: Αλέκος Φασιανός), graduated from the Athens Academy of Fine Arts and then relocated to  Paris in 1960 to study lithography at the Paris National School of Arts, where he met with many artists and writers.

Fassianos is remembered for designing the stage decorations for major classic and modern productions. His art has been shown in museums and galleries such as in Athens, Paris, and throughout Europe, as well as in Tokyo, New York, Sao Paulo, and Melbourne.

Besides private collections, his artworks can be seen in the following museums in France: the Paris Museum of Modern Art; the MAEGHT Foundation, San Paul de Vence; Center for Contemporary Art.

Alecos Fassianos is so famous in Greece, and several of his works are displayed in public places: two large murals entitled The Myth of My Neighborhood, can be seen in Athens at the Metaxourgeio metro station.

Alekos Fassianos Passed Away But He is Survived by his Art

Ancient Greek vase painting, the Byzantine and folk traditions, the painting of Theophilos, and various types of modern art are all to be found at the basis of Fassianos’ artistic creation, which through clear and uniform color, free and skilled draughtsmanship, a childlike feeling, and sensitivity of rendering, result in highly personal formations.

His work is dominated by the human figure – characteristics are the figures of the bicyclist and the smoker, which crop up again and again – while to a more limited extent he is also involved with other subjects, such as still life. 

Small sculptures can be seen in front of the Orthodox Church of St. Irene in Athens. A giant vertical mural can be seen in the lobby of the Electra Metropolis Hotel in Athens.
