As a child, George was drawn to sketching and watercolors. He put the artistic path on hold as he earned his bachelor's degree from Harvard in Classics and his dual MBA and MA from Stanford. He worked as a successful investment banker for many years, occasionally attending classes at NY art schools. In recent years, he has been devoting more of this time to making figurative art, mostly sculpture but also drawing and painting.
His influences include Classical Greek (which he grew up with in his hometown of Athens), the later European sculptors who were influenced by it such as Auguste Rodin and Aristide Maillol, and currently working sculptor/painters such as Lupertz, Baselitz, Shutte, and Houseago.
His most recent exhibition at Van Der Plas Gallery in New York City was a success, including having his piece "Alex Withdrawn" lauded by Artcritical as well as by two sculptors represented in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Van Der Plas continues to offer "Alex Withdrawn" - which is being issued as 7 unique variants + 2 artists proofs. His next show is scheduled for May 2020 at the Greek Consulate of New York.
Collectors and critics have described his figurative sculptures as "beautiful", "emotive", and "lifelike" and unique to most figurative sculpture they have seen before. Working from life models, he uses mixed materials - clay, metals, acids, paint, wood - to convey the beauty and imperfection of the human body and soul.
