About Geoge Koftis

George Koftis is a painter living and working in Thessaloniki Greece. During his studies both in Florence (Academy of Fine Arts) and in Thessaloniki (School of Fine Arts) he developed a deep love for the visual arts on which he has dedicated his life’s work for the past twenty years. George employs various styles that can differ in many ways but all stay close to a vibrant colour style painting which is a central feature and bonding element in his art. George has exhibited his works in numerous gallieries and art shows in Greece and abroad in countries such as Spain, Germany , Turkey, France and USA. George has also worked as a video artist and a scenographer for the national theatre of Greece.
