Vassilis Vassilakakis was born in Agista, Greece in 1968. He studied painting at the School of Fine Arts of the Aristotle University in Thessaloniki (1988-1994) and at the Fine Arts School of the Universitat de Barcelona (1995-1997). He has presented his work in solo and group exhibitions in Greece and abroad. Lives and works in Thessaloniki.

Taking photography -sometimes more and sometimes less obviously- as a starting-point, V. Vassilakakis shows us night landscapes which record aspects of the urban space which surrounds him. His work revolves around the lie of the manufactured image of painting. Vassilakakis's pictures attempt to render the 'other sense' to which the unreasoning emotion of fear and anxiety in the night gives rise. The supernatural moonlight which haunts the nocturnal urban landscapes of Vassilakakis help us to gain an idea of the context of life and the place of the subject within it.
