The Grecotel Pallas Athena hotel, located in the center of the Greek capital, is currently hosting a retrospective exhibition of Greek artist Kostas Spyropoulos, titled “Pop art is here to stay”.

The exhibition is part of Grecotel Athena Pallas’ art events that take place under the theme “Art in the heart of Athens”.

“Spyropoulos is an excellent designer, who manages through his strange human forms and the characteristic pop art features, to aptly deliver the message of his subjects,” Grecotel said in an announcement.

In his paintings, the artist uses the joy of narration, also integrating advertisements as pop-up features, as well as allegory elements. “The exhibition shows optimism and joyful mood, while humor offers a light approach to everyday issues,” Grecotel said.

Kostas Spyropoulos was born in 1952 and grew up in the city of Patra in the Peloponnese, where he first showed his talent in painting.

He studied medicine in Athens, Indianapolis, USA, and London, as well as painting at the Heron Art Institute of Indianapolis. He is professor of Medicine at the University of Patra. During 2000-2008, he was associate professor at the School of Fine Arts of the University of Ioannina.

Spyropoulos is a member of the Chamber of Fine Arts of Greece. He has exhibited his paintings in solo and group exhibitions, galleries, international art fairs and biennales in Greece, Europe and the US.
