George Pascalis––Artist CV
Gold Coast Queensland
For most of my professional working life, I lived and worked in Sydney, as an Artist, Senior Art Director, and Artist-Illustrator, working for numerous Ad Agencies, and Art & Graphic Design Studios; whilst always exploring and developing my Fine-Art skills and passion for Art, (life drawing, life portrait painting, landscape, still life, and contemporary modern abstract art).
During my time in Sydney, I was self-employed as a Freelance-Artist for the Art and Advertising Industry, at different levels of capacity, obtaining very high standards in conceptual Advertising Art, Graphic Design, and Illustrative-Artworks; winning a few Artwork and Art-Direction awards along the way.
*Winner of the Australian Writers and Art Directors 1986 Advertising Award for Design and Art-Illustration.
*Illustrating Australian native birds for a series of BHP Stainless Steel calendars.
*Designing/Illustrating booklets and brochures.
*Impressionist painters for press campaign by management consultants Deloitte Touche Thomatsu.
*Australian native animals for press campaign for Yeramba Estates.
My passion for Art, has taken me to all the Art movements, to experiment, different methods of painting.
To best describe myself and my work is to say, I’ve always searched for new ground to explore, with different ways to create; trying new methods, in the search of excellence, within recognised Art movements.
My artwork creating these days; is done in a capacity of an individual, which is more focused on a personal and private recreational pursuit, e.i. a hobbyist, who is wholly creating for private enjoyment.
