Michalis Katzourakis

Michalis Katzourakis was born in Alexandria in 1933. He studied painting under André Lhote and drawing and poster design under Paul Colin in Paris (1951-1955). Between 1960-1967, he was art advisor to the National Tourist Organization (EOT). In 1962, together with F. Carabott, he established the K&K Athens Advertising Center. In 1979 the historic Denise René gallery organized his first solo exhibition in Paris. In 1997, at the opening of the 47th Biennale of Venice, Kantzourakis’s large sculpture, Incontri, was presented on a floating platform. In 2001, the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art and, in 2002, the Athens School of Fine Arts presented retrospective exhibitions of his work (1965-2001), including paintings, sculptures and constructions.
