Born in Athens, Kyriakos Katzourakis studied painting at the School of Fine Arts (1963-1968) with Yannis Moralis and stage scenery (1966-1968) with Vassilis Vassiliadis.  He continued his studies in London at St. Martins School of Art (1973-1974) and at Croydon College of Art (1974-1975), where he took lessons on silk printing.  He had his first one-man exhibition in Athens (1966).  His work was shown in a series of other solo and group exhibitions in Greece and abroad as well.  Parallel to painting he was also engaged with stage scenery and costume design for the Greek movie industry.  He had been awarded with the "Parthenis Prize" of the "Astor" competition (1969).  He was a founding member of the group "New Greek Realists" (1969).  His work is distinct for its critical realism and has an intense expressionist style.  Kyriakos Katzourakis passed way in Athens (2021).
