Evangelos Faeinos studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts under Oumvertos Argyros and Epameinondas Thomopoulos and in the late 1940s and early 1950s trained under Giorgos Vakirtzis in producing large-scale film advertising billboards. He also worked in advertising. Since 1952 and for seven years, he lived and worked in Canada, where he became involved with animation. He returned to Athens in 1960. In interviews, he has described a personal path beginning with the study of Impressionism before arriving at a painting which, in his opinion, responds to “today’s machine-dominated world” by combining organic motifs and elements of human presence with the energy of the machine in a metaphysical atmosphere, using the technical skills he had acquired by working in the applied arts. He has had solo and group exhibitions in Greece and other countries.
