KOSTAS LOUSTAS (1933-2014)
Kostas Loustas was born in Athens and brought up in Florina (northwest of Greece), a town with a rich artistic and cultural heritage.
He studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts (1953-1958) with Yiannis Moralis being amongst his teachers and mentors. He first received international acclaim in New York City during the early 1960s where he lived and worked for several years.
His solo and group exhibitions of this period include, among others, those at Saldinger (40W 57th street), Chase (31E 64th street), Chevance (714 Madison Avenue) and Joseph Paolillo (845 Madison Avenue) galleries in New York City, and Zaydler Gallery (39C Harrington Road, South Kensington) in London. His collaboration with Galerie Internationale (1095 Madison Avenue) in New York, where he held his first solo exhibition in 1972, continued for several years following his permanent return to Thessaloniki, Greece in the early 1980s.
