Georgiou studied fine art and sculpture at the Athens School of Fine Arts (1982-1986); his tutors in painting were D. Mitara and D. Kokkinidi – in sculpture, Th. Panourgia. He also continued his education at the Royal College of Fine Arts in London under P. De Francia (1985-1986). In addition to painting and sculpture, Georgiou studied scenography in Florence. He paints with oils and acrylic, while his sculptural materials include metals, fabrics such as polyester and techniques such as welding. His style of painting has a personalized distorting expressionistic flow, with many dramatic flourishes. Without sacrificing visual reality, the Greek artist creates comprehensive works that, through their deformation and violent use of colour, bring forth a sense of anxiety and internal conflict.
