Giorgos Kordis

Artist Summary

The Athens based fine artist & iconographer George Kordis may perhaps be considered as one of the most important representatives of the revival of the icon.

Born in Greece in 1956, George Kordis studied theology at the University of Athens. He then pursued his studies in theology and the aesthetics of Byzantine painting at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Boston, gaining an MA in theology. In 1991 he was awarded his Doctorate in Theology at the University of Athens, where he was appointed to the post of Lecturer and served as assistant professor in Iconography (Theory and Practice).


In addition to his academic work, Dr. Kordis periodically lectures as visiting professor and teaches icon painting courses in the US (Yale University & University of South Carolina), Romania (School of Theology of Bucharest), and Ukraine (Pedagogical University of Odessa), among others.


Dr. Kordis is also a prolific author.
