George Trimitsis' formal education is in the sciences. He holds a Doctorate degree in Chemistry and has been on the faculty at the University of Pittsburgh for nearly thirty years. He retired from the University in 2006 and he and his wife moved to Florida in 2007. Together with his scientific endeavors, Trimitsis has been actively involved in producing and exhibiting art. A great deal has been written about the relationship between art and science in such Journals as Leonardo and numerous books have been published on this subject. Although opinions about the similarities and differences between the two fields differ, Trimitsis has found that his active involvement in both of them has given him a unique perspective in each of these fields. Furthermore with scientific research being based on the strict laws of nature, it has been a pleasure for him to delve into art creation where even the sky is not a limit. As he explains in his Artist's Statement, the computer is his primary tool for creating his artwork. This platform gives him the flexibility he needs to carry out what amounts to research in art creation.
George Trimitsis has exhibited his art nationally in the form of group exhibitions as well as one- and two-person shows in galleries, Museums, art centers and University forums. His work has found a home in the permanent collections of Institutions of Higher Learning, e.g., Mount Aloysius College, Cresson, PA, museums, e.g., Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, Loretto, PA, and numerous private collections.
