(Crete), Yannis Migadis
studied painting at the School of Fine Arts, Athens (1945-1951) with
Costas Parthenis and stage scenery and costume design at the ÉcoleNationaleSupérieuredesArtsDécoratifs in Paris. He
also took free lance lessons in history of art, archeology,
architecture and aesthetics at "Athenaeum".
He had his first solo exhibition in Athens (1954).
Other one-man and group shows in Greece and abroad followed as
well. Together with painting he was as well engaged in stage
scenery designing, theatre and Greek and foreign cinema. He
also painted frescos and has illustrated books, calendars and magazines
and published a series of articles on literary and art magazines too. Starting from an expressionist
stage scenery like
style, his work has a distinct Greek air of lyric realism. Yannis Migadis passed away in Athens (2017).
