The happiest person in San Francisco
George Zisiadis is one of the most creative artists of San Francisco.
He was born in New York and he regularly visits his hometown of Thessaloniki every summer. He explains that he grew up in one of the Greek neighbourhoods of New York. He graduated from St. Demetrios School in Queens and that’s the reason why he speaks fluent Greek.
“I was raised in the Greek populated district of Astoria in New York. The fact that I used to spend all summers in Greece as a child, helped me in growing up with two cultures”, the artist stated in an interview with ellines.com.
He later enrolled to Stuyvesant High School and also graduated from the Sociology Faculty of Harvard University in 2011.
The artist’s intention is to breathe creativity and subversive humour into everyday life. His works have been endorsed by major magazines and newspapers, like Time, NPR, WIRED, FastCompany and PSFK.
He has been described as the Happiest Guy in San Francisco and in his turn he tries to make the citizens of San Francisco happier.
“Happiness is to appreciate the beauty of everything around you. That’s the message and bottom line of my projects.”
