Yorgos

Yorgos is a London-based painter and street artist who grew up alternatively in Germany and Greece. His large-scale murals, characterised by abstracted, intertwined bodies, can be seen throughout London. 

Influenced by his multicultural upbringing, his work depicts human complexity and is inspired by dark materialism, gender inequality, fear and uncertainty in our world in crisis.

He explains: “Rather than focusing on cognitive justifications and expressions, I follow human gestures, taking physical interactions as signs for meanings, emotions, and relations. The moral and emotional qualities of human beings are embodied and emerge through the movement of the body and its interaction with space.”

For Yorgos, the nudity of his subjects enhances their distance from socially constructed views of class, distinction, beauty, and sexuality.
