George Politis


“My work depends on texture. I emphasize on it as I want to be able to create the various effects of time on metal, wood or wall. A good variety of transparent vs opaque colors, granulation qualities and certainly lightfastness are very important to me. When I discovered DANIEL SMITH watercolors, I knew I had everything I needed. A great range of colors (that can suit everyone’s needs), well ground to be consistent tube after tube.”
—George Politis 



George Politis paints in watercolours and lives in Thessaloniki in Greece. He works in several media, but he prefers watercolor for its transparent and luminous results. He also likes to paint miniature artworks.


He is the organizer and curator of the Thessaloniki Biennial of Watercolour (“Watercolor International”) and has served as juror in three IWS exhibitions and the Biennial of Watercolour in Estaimpuis, Belgium.
His paintings are featured in art books and catalogs. L’Aquarelliste, the Société Canadienne de l’Aquarelle’s color magazine published one article on Miniature painting featuring some of his paintings, Spring 2000. International Artist published an article on his painting approach in 2001. Other articles and paintings have been published in The Artist, UK (2000, 2002), L’ Art de l’ Aquarelle (2012, 2015) and several other magazines.
