He was primarily a painter but also created wood-carving, illustrations, stage and costume designs.

He composed more than 5,000 works of art within his lifetime. His art is characterized by the teachings of folk and Byzantine art and their combination with modern artistic influences. Source: Spyros Vassiliou Archive
