Who the fuck is Yiorgos Zafiriou.

I am a performance artist. Often my work is provocative. The intent is to elicit a reaction from audiences by challenging established beliefs about who we are as human beings, and our role within society.

I am fascinated by the investigation of personal identity: exploring topics such as gender, sexuality, culture and politics, examined through a personal lens.

My art is a way to deal with my inner anxieties. I ask what are the characteristics that define us all. What happens when we question these preconceptions? What fades away and what remains? 

I have produced an eclectic portfolio. At times it challenges what you expect art to be. Sometimes it is just for fun.

I am an artist.
