Renowned Melbourne artist George Petrou is a successful graphic designer and acclaimed portrait artist. Passionate about Australians from all walks of life who have served our great nation with gallantry and sacrifice, George captures the eye and gives voice and further life to their incredible stories.
In June 2020 George was awarded an OAM for “Services to the Visual Arts and to Veterans”, and in the same year he released The Art Of Sacrifice – a haunting and poignant exploration of a spirit like no other: the Anzac Spirit.
His painting has evolved from a strong contemporary abstract style to restrained portrait painting with a splash of abstraction to free up the subject from total reality. George’s portraits proudly hang in museums in France, Government House Canberra, and a range of military institutions across Australia.
