Fassianos is regarded as one of the greatest masters of postwar Greek art and this is his first solo exhibition at the Grosvenor Gallery. Fassianos draws inspiration from Greek myths, Fayum portraits, Byzantine icons and the shadow theatre. His paintings are also characterized 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 colour he uses to highlight the sensuality and the immense pleasure of everyday life.
