Loukas Venetoulias

b. 1930, Thessaloniki – d. 1984, Thessaloniki.

The main theme of his paintings was the urban landscape of his hometown, Thessaloniki. In his first works the presence of human figures is rare. On the contrary, in the next period of his work, during the Greek Dictatorship, human figures contribute to communicate critical messages to the people. The same goal is served by the forms of machinery that dominate certain works of this period. Santorini's landscapes and still life paintings are two more series he worked on since the mid-1970s. During the last years of his life, he returned to painting Thessaloniki’s landscapes, emphasizing on the way the modern way of living influenced the city.
