Georgios Georgiadis was born in Athens in 1934.


He studied sculpture at the School of Fine Arts, Athens from 1954 until 1959 under Yiannis Pappas and Michael Tombros. Later, on a scholarship by the Eugenides Foundation, he continued his studies in Florence with Bruno Bearzi.


His expressionistic sculptural language is anthropocentric with symbolistic elements. The seated female figure is his primary subject matter. Sometimes headless, alone or in groups and positions suggesting physical and mental tension. His work is rooted in the values of classical sculpture with contemporary influences. His favourite material to work with is bronze.


Georgiadis presented his work in a large number of solo shows and participated in many group exhibitions abroad, notably; the 1960 Biennale de Jeanes Artistes, Paris, the 1971, 1976 and 1978 Exposition Internationale de Sculpture Contemporaine, Musee Rodin, Paris, the 1976 Les Arts en Europe, Brussels, the 1976 Alexandria Biennale, the 1978 Mostra Internazionale di Sculptura all’ Aperto, Museo d’Arte Moderna, Milano.


He has exhibited his work in Greece, France, Italy, Egypt, the Netherlands, Monaco, Norway, Tai Pei and the USA. In 1984 he represented Greece at the Venice Biennale together with Christos Caras.  


His work can be found in the National Gallery of Greece, the Goulandris Museum of Contemporary Art, the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, the Teloglion Fine Arts Foundation, the National Bank of Greece Cultural Foundation and many other public and private collections.
