Spyros Moschoutis was born on 19 December 1925 in Athens, Greece. He studied at the Athens University of Economics and Business - AUEB (1952) and is a gradute of the Athens Conservatory (1945). In 1946-1950 he studied painting in the workshops of Asantour Baharian and Thanassis Stefopoulos. His favorite thematic references are surrealistic and metaphysical painting. His work is characterized by disparate combinations of jarring objects (such as geometrical flying patterns tied by a string) and imaginary landscapes, with an emphasis on a space seen through perspective. The human presence in his work - when present - is usually insinuated and miniscule, thus suggesting the deadend of the human condition.
