Giordona Aviv AKA Gia, is a contemporary artist and photographer based in Los Angeles and New York. She graduated from The Academy of Arts in Montenegro.
She is a two times National Award winning writer in Montenegro, and her passion for stories is reflected in her artistic work.
Gia stared painting at the age of 5. She had her first exhibition at the age of 13. Despite of her obvious artistic talent she decided to pursue acting instead. She started her acting career at the Royal Theater of Montenegro as well as The National Theater. She appeared in over 30 productions by the age of 20. At 21 she hosted a talk show on the popular European TV station “Pink TV”.
Gia had spent 8 years doing volunteer work for an organization called “The Children’s Alliance”, whose main goal was promoting children’s rights and working with underprivileged children, refugees and victims of war. Gia was honored with a special award for her outstanding accomplishments and contributions to “The Children’s Alliance”.
She has had numerous group exhibitions within the street art community of Los Angeles. Working with children and inspiring education and personal power in people is the purpose of all of her artistic endeavors.
