THE CREATIVE MIND BEHIND THE CAMERA
He often decides to focus on personal projects, following his instinct and finding inspiration on diverse subjects: Studying the relationship of humans with water as a natural element on a global scale or seeking for his cinematic memories of the American West are two examples of such diversity. On top of that, Yiorgos has received prestigious Photographic Awards!
One of his famous projects, “Global Summer” points out that, despite their similar needs, people have strong behavioural differences that come with diverse environments and cultures, such as for example those of the United States, India or the countries of Europe. In a sense, it’s a study on universal behaviour and more specifically, on how people relate to water as a natural element. The artist suggests that when people are near water – the sea, lakes, rivers and swimming pools – they are not only relaxed and amused but, wearing as little as possible, they reveal their inner nature.
His work was featured in several exhibitions at key galleries and museums, including the Benaki Museum, 138 Pireos St and the Galerie Karsten Greve, Cologne. Yiorgos Kordakis’s first artwork to be offered at auction was Global Summer #27 (Polaroid Series) at Wright in 2010.
Moreover, the artwork of Yiorgos Kordakis, has been featured in articles for the Art Media Agency and the “ArtDaily”. The most recent article is Yiorgos Kordakis exhibition at the AD gallery written for the Art Media Agency in January 2014.
