George Papassavas (January 28, 1924) is a painter who has traveled extensively throughout Latin America.

Born in Stavroupoli, Greece, Papassavas against his father's will taught himself the techniques of the classical artist at a young age. At the age of 17, he was put into exile and forced into labor by the invading Bulgarian army. After his return to Greece, he began formal study at the Athens School of Fine Arts. In 1955, after being enchanted by the book Brazil: A Land of the Future by Stefan Zweig, Papassavas journeyed with his wife to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where he studied under Candido Portinari. In search of artistic inspiration, Papassavas made several trips throughout South America observing both its people and natural environment. At the end of 1967, he moved to United States and continued his development in art at Harvard University.
