Filled with exhibits of immense quality and utmost importance for the cultural world of modern Greece, the Alekos Fassianos Museum is a newly-found building near the center districts of Athens, in order to commemorate the life and work of the renowned Greek painter!

Created by the artist himself, along with his family and the architect Kyriakos Krokos, the museum first opened its doors in the year 2023, a year after Fassianos’ passing. Situated in the exact spot where his family house used to be, this building contains a majority of his known works from 1956 until the end of his life, including, of course, paintings, posters, daily-use items, leaflets, and book covers!

Witness from up close his early Parisian subtractive aesthetic, the change of his unique style through the passage of time, and the characteristic look of Fassianos’ legendary paintings! On top of that, the museum is often a host to various showcases, open talks, and kids’ educational programs, such as creating their own shadow theater shows and exploring the painter’s hand-created items!

Alekos Fassianos Museum is open Wednesday to Friday from 11:00 to 16:00, as well as Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 to 15:00, though it closes for about a month during the summertime.
