“It’s a pretty simple story. I have always loved bronze above any other material.”
George Roumanas hails from Petrítsi, a village in Southern Greece renowned for its idyllic environs. Like the artists who flock there from around the world, George is influenced by his lush surroundings, as well as the imaginative work and creativity of the makers who call Petrítsi home. The self-taught artist brings common experiences, concepts, and emotions—love, dance, music, family—to life by combining wood, stone, and other natural materials with manmade ones, like glass and bronze.
Take a tour of George's Athens studio and take in some of his own words of wisdom on the blog.
