Spyros Vassiliou (born in Galaxidi in 1903 - died in Athens in 1985) was one of the most prolific and well-known Greek artists of his time. Primarily a painter, he did wood-carving, illustrations, stage and costume designs and much more; also a teacher and art critic. He became widely recognized for his work when he received the Benaki Prize by the Academy of Athens for which he was assigned to paint the interior of the Agios Dionysios Church in Kolonaki. 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.

The home-museum Atelier Spyros Vassiliou operated for 12 consecutive years from 2004 until February 2016, when it closed its doors to the public. During its operation, the museum held numerous exhibitions, educational programs, tours, events and much more. Vassiliou's family continues its operations preserving and promoting his work.
