Spiros Alamanos was born in Corfu 1947. His parents were painter Georgios Alamanos, who at a young age was a student of painter Angelos Pisanis, and Aikaterini Savva. He took his first painting lessons with the priest Nikolaos Kourtelesis and then studied painting at the Art School of Corfu where he later became a professor. Later he studied at the Athenian Technological Institute of Athens. In 1977 he returned to Corfu where he was employed as a photographer and administrative employee at the local Archaeological Service, working alongside visual arts. His works were presented to the public in 13 individual exhibitions of painting, photography and engraving in Corfu. He took part in many group exhibitions in Corfu, Athens, Thessaloniki, Kefalonia, Patras and elsewhere. He has designed many posters with various themes, while in 1971 he was awarded the first prize for the poster design of the Thessaloniki International Exhibition. In 1993, a retrospective

exhibition of works was presented in the annex of the National Gallery of Corfu. His works are housed in the National Gallery of Greece, the Municipal Gallery of Corfu, the Historical and Ethnological Society of Greece, the Gallery of the Ionian Bank and the Bank of Attica, the Solomos Museum of Corfu and the Reading Society of Corfu, while most of his work can be found in private collections. Even in the Corfu Art Gallery there is a huge collection of his works in the specially designed “Spyros Alamanos” room. His creation is characterized as anthropocentric while his style is surrealistic and expressionistic. Alamanos’ works have a dreamlike character.
