||Born and educated in New York City,
George Cladis, studied with Yasuo
Kuniyoshi and Adja Yunkers.
Following an outstanding career in
Fellow, College of Aeronautics), he
moved to Paris, France where he was
Artist in Residence at the American
Center for the Arts and the Cité
International des Arts (1969-73).
Returning to NYC, he invented novel
techniques to portray experiences
drawn from a tightly bound immigrant
community and the pre-Glasnost
industrial-military complex. In 1990,
his work, Atomic Dust at Dawn, won
first prize at the Cultural and Heritage
Affairs of Union County, NJ sponsored
by Merck &Co. Then, April Kingsley
wrote: a radiance bursts out of
agitated, turgid, paint-encrusted
surfaces transmuting Cladis'
spirituality to the physical canvas that
the viewer takes back to the spiritual.
George Cladis paints the universal unconscious.
