Yannis Gaitis (1923-1984) was a 20th-century Greek painter and sculptor, best known for his paintings of repeating men dressed identically in hats and plaid jackets. Throughout his oeuvre, the figures in his works represent the men of the modern society: alone, homogeneous, interchangeable. This alienation was the sole focus of his artistic career, culminating in singularly concentrated body of work. Born in Athens, Greece on March 4, 1923, Gaitis studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts. The island of Ios, Greece built a museum dedicated to his work in 2008. The artist died on July 22, 1984.
