George Skotinos

George Skotinos (b.1937, Limassol) lives and works in Ayia Napa. He studied at the National School of Drama in Greece (1961 – 1964). He continued his studies in film-making in New York at the School of Visual Arts and at the Movie Subscription Group Schools (1964 – 1967). He also obtained a scholarship from Ford Foundation for studies in Painting (1976 – 1977). His practice, which moves between realism, abstraction and surrealism, is artistically recognizable for bearing its own personal style through circles of thematics.¬†Skotinos represented Cyprus at the 34th Venice Biennale of Art, Cyprus’s first participation, with five other Cypriot artists.
