Yorgos LAZONGAS was born in Larissa in 1945.
Initially studied architecture at the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki and turned to painting in the early 1970s.
He processed deeply and extensively the concept of painting as an act of imprinting traces of writing and as an act of concealing and revealing the image – notions which he interpreted using various media and on which he based a large part of his blind painting of the 1980s.
He has presented his work through many solo exhibitions in Greece and abroad and has represented Greece in international exhibitions: Biennale des Jeunes, Paris 1980, Art et Poésie, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris 1981, Sao Paulo Biennale 1983, etc.
He lives and works in Athens.
