Born in Athens, Alecos Levidis took initially lessons on design (1960-1962) with Costas Malamos and Alekos Kontopoulos and later continued his studies on staging and stage scenery at the Université du Theatre des Nations in Paris (1963) and on architecture at the École d' Architecture of the University of Geneva (1964-1969).  He had his first one-man exhibition in Athens (1982), having already participated to group shows since 1980.  Other solo and group exhibitions followed both in Greece (mainly) and abroad.  He has also painted frescos, designed stage scenery and illustrated book front pages, while he has written a number of books on fine arts and history as well.  He is elected permanent member of the Academy of Athens (2021). He is awarded with the Gold Cross of the Order of Merit (2022).  His painting is the result of his intellectual interests and is concentrated in the field of traditional expressionism and objective realism.  He lives and works in Athens.
