Ioannis Lassithiotakis was born in Crete in 1956 and studied painting at Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence. Since his first solo exhibition (Dada gallery, 1981), and by the mid-1980s, his works revealed a search for an artistic language of a neo-expressionist orientation, combining painting with collage or polyester sculpture constructions, usually anthropomorphic. The next stages of his career reveal ongoing research on the visual media and the stimuli that dictate his themes.
Through all these explorations, he is eventually led to a painting focused on human presence, with images based mainly on photographs of familiar faces. He teaches at the Athens Technological Educational Institute (TEI), where he is currently an associate professor in the department of Graphic Design. He has presented his work in solo exhibitions in Athens, Patras, Thessaloniki, and Crete.
