    About the artist

    Painter - Scenographer - Architect

    Contemporary figurative expressionism and symbolism.

    George Pol. Ioannidis was born on 6th August 1956 in Thessaloniki - Greece. 

    Studied Architecture in Venice and Painting-Scenography in the Academies of Fine Art in Venice and Florence under the supervision of Emilio Vedova and Silvio Loffredo. Apprenticed in the studio of Pietro Annigoni, the Florentine world-famous portrait painter (1982-1984).

    Throughout his lifetime he relentlessly paints with his unique creative style so producing genuine works of art where quality cannot be compromised. George Pol. Ioannidis’ art is a skilful combination of pictorial and abstract painting, which is characterized by an expressionistic emphasis and colour intensity. It embraces the whole history of art, having as a result a peculiar eclecticism, with surrealistic, symbolic and allegoric elements. 

    In his paintings he uses the technique of superimposed color layers (La technique au Glacis), which had been developed in the Renaissance. The depth, the mystery and the unlikely richness of color tones could not have been achieved in his creations without the use of this technique. The completion of his painting projects is a very time consuming process resulting in a very modest annual production of tables in a year, about 6-7.

    He has presented his creative work many times, performing solo and group exhibitions in Public Galleries, Museums, Art Halls, Cultural Centers and private galleries. His creations are to be found at Galleries, Museums and in many private collections in Greece and abroad.
