1 min read

The Alekos Fassianos Museum announces that its museum’s spaces are expanding with the addition of the artist authentic atelier.

The Alekos Fassianos Αtelier in Athens, housed in the third floor of the Alekos Fassianos museum, is a recreation of his studio in Athens. Visitors are invited to discover a more personal side of the artist by entering his room, seeing his clothes, his pallets, his personal objects, pictures, non finito works, his wardrobe, including clothes he sewed and designed, toys he created and played with as a child.

The space sheds light on the artist’s character and way of living which were an integral part of his way of creating. It emphasizes on his mutilfaceted personality and illustrates his curiosity to experiment with different mediums: bronze, metal, wood, ceramic. He wanted to keep the objects of his everyday life always close to him, which is why we see them scattered throughout the space. On the floor, on trays, on shelves.

“…i make the materials myself. I make paints with glue and powder. When you cook at home, don’t you cook better than these restaurants? That’s kind of what i do. My studio is like a kitchen. I cook and make unique recipes.” – Alekos Fassianos

Visits will be organized in small groups and will start every hour from the museum entrance for a duration of about 20 minutes.

*Photography of the third floor is strictly forbidden.
