Born in Athens, Yiorgos Milios studied painting and etching at the School of Fine Arts (1955-1961) with Yannis Moralis, Yannis Kefallinos, Efthimios Papadimitriou and Constantine Grammatopoulos.  With the help of a state scholarship, he continued (since 1964) his studies in etching.  Another state and a French government scholarships, helped him attend lessons on lithography (1965), mosaic (1967) and sociology at the École Nationale des Beaux Arts in Paris.  In 1975 he studied etching at the École Boule, in that same city.   He had his first one-man exhibition in Athens (1975).  However, he had already participated in group shows since 1965.  Other solo and group exhibitions followed in Greece and abroad, including the Biennales of Sao Paulo and Baden-Baden.  He was curator (1979) and lector (1985) for painting at the School of Fine Arts, Athens.  In 1988 he was elected professor at the School of Fine Arts of the University of Thessaloniki and later on (1996) professor for etching at the School of Fine Arts in Athens.  He has also worked at the Byzantine Museum as restorer.  Starting from an evolved surrealism, his work moves in the field of abstract expressionism.  He lives and works in Athens.
