Pavlos
Greek, 1930–2019
Follow

Greek artist Pavlos makes paper sculptures from misprinted, cut-up posters, and metal wire. Refining his expression of the quotidian, Pavlos transforms posters into three-dimensional representations of everyday items—such as a bouquet of flowers, clothing, socks, and trees—and mines the ubiquitous imagery of cartoons and comic books. He has been closely associated with the Nouveau Realistes movement in France, but he is ultimately more interested in exploring the surface of the everyday than in the movement’s critical engagement with popular culture.
