Stefanos Daskalakis

sd

Born in Pireas in 1952, he was an Athens School of Fine Arts student under the tutelage of Giorgos Mavroidis (1970-1974). He pursued his studies in Lyon and Paris (1978-1981) and then joined Leonardo Cremonini’s studio at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts as observer. He returned to Greece in 1982 and settled in Athens. Along with Irini Iliopoulou, Giorgos Rorris, Edouard Sacaillan and Maria Filopoulou they set up an informal artistic team which endorsed the ‘return to paintability’. It was in 1982 that he featured his works in his first individual exhibition in Athens and he has since had another five solo shows along with numerous group exhibitions. His works are found in the National Gallery of Greece, the National Bank of Greece Cultural Foundation, the Frissiras Museum and the Kouvoutsakis Art Institute as well as in private collections in Greece, France and Belgium. He resides and works in Athens.
