Dimitris Koukos was born in Athens in 1948.

In 1969, he enrolled at The School of Fine Arts, Athens, where he studied painting under Yiannis Moralis and Nicos Nicolaou, and stage design in the workshop of Vassilis Vassiliades.

He continued his studies in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts under Gustave Singier between 1975 and 1978.

Koukos is predominantly a landscape artist. His love of nature explained in his own words: 'It is impossible to put into words the variety of expression conveyed by a landscape’s infinite colour graduations. As an artist, I am inspired by and work from nature, observing and rendering the fleeting quality and changing effects of light, to capture the essence of truth. The landscape generously offers its abundant wealth to all art forms and stylistic choices. The wind, the breeze, the scents of nature are all part of our environment, perceived by every human being and, depending on individual sensibilities, transmuted into sounds, words and colours. This is our world.'

From 1983 onwards, he was a visiting professor at The School of Fine Art, Athens, firstly in the workshop of Yiannis Moralis and later with Dimitris Mytaras.

His work can be found in The National Gallery of Greece, The Municipal Gallery of Athens, The Municipal Gallery of Rhodes, The Macedonian Museum of Modern Art, The National Bank of Greece, and many other public and private collections.
