Painted in 1984, the present work stems directly from the artist's own imagined mythological world which incorporates classical myths and Modern Greek imagery. Outlined by sinuous brushstrokes of gold paint reminiscent of the work of Matisse, is a blue rider. His imposing figure and his masculinity are evocative of Greek heroes of the likes of Achilles and Hector. 

'Alecos Fassianos belongs to the generation of those who inherited hellenocentric modernism. His youthful works were influenced by French art informel. But he quickly found his own personal style. Ancient vase painting, vernacular art and the teachings of Tsarouchis assisted him in composing a code genetically programmed to convey a message of vital well-being and optimism' (M. Lambraki-Plaka, National Gallery 100 Years, Four Centuries of Greek Painting, Athens, 1999, p. 515).
