About Gerard Economos

Of Greek ancestry, Gérard
 Economos was born in Paris in 
1935. Since 1978, Economos resided in Guadalajara, Mexico, a city 
that became his refuge from a very
 busy world traveling schedule. He
studied Architecture and Urbanism at the 
Fine Arts School in Paris and launched 
his career as a painter in 1953. In time he
 established close relationships with many artistic and literary icons, among them 
Jean Cocteau, Michel del Castillo,
