Local artist, George Raftopoulos. His art, his life, his passions.
This week we speak to internationally and nationally acclaimed visual artist George Raftopoulos – a local artist from Paddington.
Barbara Dowse wrote: “George Raftopoulos positions himself as part of an art-historical lineage.His works are a form of modern day myth- making, fables of modern life; a psycho-drama and collage of his thoughts, dreams and ideas and his flights of fancy. While outwardly heroic and romantic, his works frequently harbour subversive, often acerbic social commentary, and elements of self-examination and reinvention in the service of purging the angst and dilemma of constructing identity, both personal and national”.
We talk to George about his art, his life and his passions. He also has some sound advice for all aspiring artists and the young at heart.
See more of his art on his website.
Arts Wednesday 25 August. 1030-1200.
