Kessanlis was born in Thessaloniki and studied at The Academy of Fine Arts, Athens between 1950 and 1955 in the studio of Yannis Moralis. He was also a student of Spyropoulos and Nicolaou.

Later on a scholarship from The Italian Institute, Athens, he attended The School of Art Conservation, Rome (1955-9), whilst also taking lessons in mural painting and engraving at the Scuola delle Arti Ornamentali di San Giacomo.

In the early 60s he moved to Paris and in 1980 returned to Greece as a professor in The Academy of Fine Art, Athens and later between 1991-1995 as a rector (in the sphere of academia this is the highest academic position).

Kessanlis held more than 30 solo exhibitions, in Greece and abroad. He has shown his work in numerous international group events, including Nouvelles aventures de l'objet (Paris, 1961) and Three Proposals for a New Greek Sculpture (Venice, 1964). In 1988 he represented Greece at The Venice Biennale.

In The 1965 Biennale of Paris, Kessanlis used an intermediate screen on which the shadows of the visitors were projected. This work established him internationally as one of the greatest artists of European modernism.

In 1959 he received The Modigliani Award, in 1961 an honourable commendation at The Sao Paulo Biennale and in 1997 first prize at the Salon de Montrouge.

His work can be found in many public and private collections in Greece, France and internationally. Notably at The National Gallery, Athens, The Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, The Vorres Museum, Musee d’Art Moderne, Paris, Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Torino, Museo d,Arte Moderna, Rome, Musee d’Art Moderne, Sao Paolo and The Museum of Modern Art, Miami.
