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

Spyros Vassiliou was born in Galaxidi in 1903, the year of birth entered on his identity card however reads 1902. Thanks to a modest scholarship of short duration granted by the elders of his birthplace, Spyros Vassiliou came to Athens to study painting at the School of Fine Arts. His first teacher at the school (1921 - 23) was Alexandros Kaloudes. The young student was discontented with the sterile teaching methods and the mandatory discipline with charcoal and pencil. He was the instigator, with others, of a movement for revitalizing the school, resulting in the election of Nikolaos Lytras and the institution of workshops. The lively band of “firebrands” enrolled in Lytras’ workshop (1923 - 26), under whose guidance they were initiated “into the principles of the Impressionists and the values of pure colour”. At about this point Spyros Vassiliou’s fertile artistic career took wing, characterized by dedication to and promotion of the individualistic nature of a national art, and the intent to converge with contemporary artistic trends while drawing on the precepts of Greek heritage. On graduating from the School in 1926, Vassiliou exhibited in the “Foyer” of the Athens Municipal Theatre, together with P. Rengos, S. Kokkinos and A. Polykandriotis.
