Featured Artist Giannis Vasilikopoulos

About the Artist:
Giannis Vasilikopoulos (born on 17 January 1927 in Amaliada, Greece) is a Greek painter. As a child, he was a mediocre student at school but he had an innate inclination towards painting. During his youth, his devotion to painting caused the adverse reaction of his father, who intended his son to become a wood merchant like himself, but Giannis never gave up painting.
He is mainly known as being a self-taught and self-representing artist, who promotes his work mainly by donating paintings to coffee shops (cafés), schools, hospitals, civil service departments and some other public places of the area, with only two exhibitions during his lifetime and without any involvement of art dealers and galleries.
His works, according to their subject matter (what each painting depicts), are divided into the following categories: Seascapes, still lifes, landscapes (& cityscapes), portraits, architecture paintings, religious paintings, people paintings as well as animal paintings.
