Masterful historical capture of the urban Athenian landscape by Vassiiou that uniquely penetrates to the heart of things effortlessly supporting the truth that captures everyday scene and activity. Vassiliou’s directness, abstract design, solid structure and painterly dynamism make him one of the most consistent recorders of the transformations of the contemporary Greek urban landscape without altering visual reality in the slightest. With a nostalgic and romantic eye he renders the familiar landscape with a poetic depiction of the Acropolis and the reconstruction of its parishes. The artist makes fruitful use of traditional types as well as avant-garde conquests, apparent contradictions structured with internal coherence, demonstrating his thorough knowledge of aesthetic laws.
