Paris Prekas is one of the most important and representative expressive artist, of the generation 1950s, in the development of modern Greek painting.

Born in Athens in 1926, an artist with a prolific presence and personal quests, a painter who worked also in sculpture, was always distinguished for his restlessness and his personal expression. He always remained devoted to all things Greek


"My passion for history is an entirely chance affair … I have often drawn upon history, not to serve it, but to exploit it, taking from it symbols, forms, colours."

(Paris Prekas)
