Institude of Sacred Arts - first Artist in Residence Giorgos Kordis

Updated: Mar 30, 2022

We are thrilled to announce our inaugural artist in residence in spring 2022 Dr. George Kordis at St vladimir’s Orthodox theological seminary

A world-renowned iconographer, Kordis has the rare distinction for a practicing artist of a complete academic training in theology, with advanced theological degrees from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Boston and the University of Athens, where he was Assistant Professor in Iconography (Theory and Practice).

..."Dr. Kordis has been a visiting professor teaching icon painting courses at Yale University, the University of South Carolina, the University of Bucharest / Department of Orthodox Theology, and Ukraine Pedagogical University, Odessa, while continuing to create major church programs of iconography."

His training as a painter preceded and motivated his move into theology: During the 1980s he worked with the Cypriot master iconographer, Fr Symeon Symeou and also studied painting at The School of Fine Arts at The Museum of Boston from 1987–89, and even while obtaining his doctorate (Athens) in 1991 he continued his studies in painting and engraving under Fotis Mastichiadis. Dr. Kordis has been a visiting professor teaching icon painting courses at Yale University, the University of South Carolina, the University of Bucharest / Department of Orthodox Theology, and Ukraine Pedagogical University, Odessa, while continuing to create major church programs of iconography – including several in the US; see Holy Trinity in Columbia SC and recently, Holy Trinity in Pittsburgh – and panel icons, which have been seen in numerous prominent exhibitions (Yale University, etc.).

As well, he is also a prolific author with wide-ranging interests: theory and practice of Orthodox iconography, Fayum mummy portraits, Theophan the Cretan, Andrei Rublev, Fotis Kontoglou, Greek folk art, and many other topics.
