Christopher Georgesco is an American sculptor. He is the son of modernist architect Haralamb H. Georgescu. He began his career in Venice, California in 1968, where he worked until 1980. His studio was located on Abbot Kenny, formerly West Washington Blvd. His first Show was at Newspace Gallery, Los Angeles, where he was primarily represented for more than 35 years along with exhibiting at Jan Turner Gallery in West Hollywood and Fred Hoffman Gallery in Santa Monica. He now lives on the outskirts of Palm Springs, where he maintains a Studio. His first solo show was deemed an overnight success by William Wilson, critic for The Los Angeles Times, and was picked up by L.A.'s top collectors. Wilson also cited Christopher Georgesco as "pushing the art world's masterpiece button" with his 10-foot-tall Totemic Concrete & Steel Columns and Tripods. His first solo show was followed by an exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art titled L.A.8. In an article in Art News, Richard Armstrong, the former curator of the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, CA, cited Christopher Georgesco as being one of the most interesting sculptors in Los Angeles.
