Helene Pavlopoulou

Helene Pavlopoulou is an Athens-based artist whose work pushes the boundaries of traditional perceptions of painting. Pavlopoulou’s paintings create spaces where past and present commune in front of the eyes of the viewers, beckoning them to enter their fictive space. Memory, Nature, and light are central elements of her work.\nWith influences from poetry, history, and the Greek landscape, the artist presents a sensitive and thoughtful layered visual vocabulary. She layers figures, colors, and patterns in a process that allows her to expand beyond the flat surface of the canvas, while simultaneously allowing the viewer to travel throughout different historical periods or mythological narratives of her native country. \nPavlopoulou originally studied painting under the wing of prominent Greek artist Dimitris Mytaras and engraving at the Athens School of Fine Arts, Greece. Both prove major influences on her work to-date. Her paintings have been exhibited in many group and solo exhibitions within Greece, curated by acclaimed individuals of the field, as well as internationally in Brussels, under the auspices of the Greek Presidency of the Council of the E.U. curated by the Hellenist Spanish writer Pedro Olalla. Pavlopoulou has also participated in numerous Art Fairs globally.\nWorks by Helene Pavlopoulou can be found in public collections, including Inter Alia, the Art Collection of the National Bank of Greece, the Bank of Piraeus Group, the Copelouzos Family Museum, the Frissiras Museum, the Thessaloniki State Museum of Contemporary Art, and many private collections across Europe and the US.
