Costas Varotsos





Costas Varotsos was born in Athens in 1955. He lives and works in Greece. He studied in the school of fine arts in Rome and in the architectural school of Pescara in Italy. In 1991 he got a scholarship from the Fulbright foundation and in 1999 he was elected as a Professor in the Architectural School of the Polytechnic University of Thessaloniki. He is a member of the Engelberg Academy in Switzerland. His Art pieces are in public spaces in Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Egypt and in the USA. His main wish is that his art pieces are in direct connection with the natural environment in which they are displayed seeking always a way of osmosis with the space. He has fulfilled numerous personal and team exhibitions in Greece and abroad. More specifically, he has participated three times and the Biennale of Venice (1993, 1995, 1999), of São Paulo (1997) and at the Documenta Kassel (2017). In 2014 he was honored by the President of the Italian Republic with the award of the Cavaliere de la Republica Italiana for his giving in the Italian arts. In 2017 he was honored with the Medal of Commander of the Order of Merit received by the President of the Greek Republic.
