The artist Georgios Kastriotis was born in Athens on June 14, 1899. Life brought him so that the boy whose grandparents' roots were in Athens, could grow up in Paris. There he went to school, making his first statues of plasticine and clay. Good in Mathematics, he enrolled at the School of Engineering in Lausanne. He fell ill and did not finish. So he found himself again for two years in Paris, (1926-1928) which marked the path of his life.
The great French sculptor Antoine Bourdelle, deeply impressed by the talent of the young Greek who did not want to become an engineer but an artist, took him to teach him.

Together we have found new ways of coating various materials with metal, from shape, material absorbency, final formation to the exhibit itself. We are very fortunate to be able to work with them from the very begining of their projects. Many times we are both astonished from the output of their work and we are very satisfied to see that it was more than what they have expected!

PHILIPPAKIS ART workshops in Athens - 55 years of handmade creations and great collaborations!
It is true that artwork created by hand preserves its value throughout the years. Having studied ancient Greek art and craftsmanship of metal processing, we create in our workshops selected artwork. The method we use, Electroforming, gives us the ability to have results of great detail in the copy produced, since our know-how in mold creation gives us the ability to work with original findings without spoiling them.
More than five decades now, the creation of such artwork in museum replicas, sculpture, jewelry, interior decoration and business gifts, is the exclusive BUSINESS of the Philippakis workshops. Working with various materials, such as, silver, copper, bronze, aluminum, marble and resin, we create artwork of high aesthetic. Absolute consistency, creative mood and above all, guarantee of originality characterize each and every cooperation that we engage in.
