Notes: A graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Athens, the Greek-born Koros arrived in the United States in 1955 to attend the Art Students League, New York City, where he worked as an assistant in the studio of Jacques Lipchitz (Lithuanian, 1891-1973). He was a professor of sculpture at the State University of New York, Stony Brook for over 30 years, and was instrumental in expanding that institution's Art Department.
Koros has been the recipient of numerous fellowships and study grants which gave him the opportunity to travel and study throughout Spain and Italy.
