Born at Drama, Phaidon (Patrikalakis) studied initially at the Vakalo School in Athens and later (1960-1967) continued at the Académie Julian, the Académie du Feu and the École de Dessin Appliqué a la Mode Historique, in Paris.  He presented his first one-man exhibition in Paris (1961), although he participated to group shows already since 1960, for other to follow later in Greece and abroad.  He had been stage scenery and costume designer for a series of theater performances both in Greece and abroad.  He had also published three albums with his work ("Aghion Oros - Kythnos", "Amorgos" and "Ia") and written a number of books.  He was engaged in sculpture as well.  Anthropocentric with an intense naive character his work may be considered being in the limits of abstract expressionism and surrealism with a distinct personal style. Phaidon (Patrikalakis) passed away in Drama (2017).
