Born in Athens, Peris Thalassinos studied architecture at the Polytechnic Schools of Munich and Vienna (1942-1943) and painting at the Schools of Fine Arts in Stuttgart with Willi Baumeister (1943-1945) and Lausanne (1945-1948), where later he specialized in etching, illustration and stage scenery with Henry Bischoff, Jean-Jacques Mennet and Casimir Raymond (1948-1951).  He had his first one-man show in Stuttgart (1946) and shown solo in Athens and Lausanne as well.  and has participated in group exhibitions abroad, including the Biennales of Sao Paolo, Lugano and Alexandria.  He took part at a series of Pan-Hellenic exhibitions as well.  He was founding member of the Institute for Graphic Arts and has been Vice-President and later President of the Board of the Fine Arts Chamber of Greece (1975-1980).  Influenced by the expressionist use of cubism, his work moves between a geometric surrealism and a poetic constructivism.  Peris Thalassinos passed away in Athens (1989).
