Yorgos Maraziotis (*1984, Athens GR) holds an MA degree in
Fine Arts from the Royal Academy in Antwerp. He has also studied Silkscreen at the SVA in New York City. Ηis practice spans in sculpture, installation, painting and archiving, and often works in the field of artistic research. He is a member of the participatory art-group November and a curatorial member of the art initiative AthenSyn.

His multidisciplinary methodology focuses on conceptual processes that question domesticity, contemporary habitation and human relations. Through the usage of common materials of the plastic arts he sculpturally intervenes in spaces and explores their cultural and architectural identity. His artworks often gain a sensorial narrative and attempt to co-exist strong antithetical notions such as private-public, pleasure-discontent, danger-safety.

His work has been exhibited in group and solo shows internationally. He lives and works in Antwerp.
