Dimitris Mytaras is a Greek artist born in Chalkis in 1934 and is considered one of the important Greek painters of the 20th century.

His work is mainly inspired by the human figure, and a combination of naturalism and expressionism. From the 1960s onward, Mytaras moved in the direction of Critical Realism, while from 1975 an expressionistic approach became more and more marked in his output.

From 1953 till 1957, Mytaras studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts under Yiannis Moralis. Later on he studied stage design at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. From 1964 till 1972, he directed the Interior Decoration Workshop of the Athens Technological Institute. Since 1975 he has been teaching at the Painting Workshop of the Athens School of Fine Arts. Mytaras has participated in more than 30 international group shows, including the 1972 Venice Biennale.

During the time of the Greek military junta of 1967-1974, Mytaras sought to comment critically on Greek life through a series of realistic works entitled Photographic Documents.[2]

In later life he turned towards classical themes.

Mytaras was also selected to create one of the official posters for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens.

Biography from Psatharis Auctions:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Dimitris Mytaras was born in Chalkida, Greece. He studied painting at the School of Fine Arts in Athens and stage design at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Paris.

In his works, the most prominent features are the intense movement of the design and the vivid colours. Expressionistic atmospheres, along with an obvious mood for social critique, are prevalent in all the periods in the last thirty years.

His plastic values are classically structured. Professor of the Athens School of Fine Arts, Mytaras has exhibited in many of the world’s capitals and has participated in virtually every important Biennal.
