Since George Ioannou arrived on the art scene as a self published artist over a decade ago, he has been credited for making his style of artwork an acceptable and collectable technique within the market. This has spawned a whole generation of artists applying his style to walls and canvas all over the world.
Making it in to the top ten best selling living artists in 2007 was a huge and unheard of achievement for a self-published artist but Ioannou puts this down to exploiting a gap in the market that wasn’t connecting with a certain group of society at the time.
Ioannou’s style has been created by a mixture of Andy Warhol and Comic book artists of the 80’s. Infusing these styles helped Ioannou come up with his style and projected him into the art market as the collectable artist he is today.
However, a new decade ushers in new concepts for Ioannou, and 2012 sees him move his creative flare into the fashion and furniture industries with the objective of offering alternative concepts for the discerning and creative part of our ever changing society.
