Upper IV Art Inspirations

Paul Giovanopoulos’ artwork is defined by complex investigation of simple objects. His original vision involved a carefully composed repetitive grid of panels as the base of a painting. Giovanopoulos then interpreted each panel, transforming the object within through “visual signatures” from art history, cultural icons, and concept. In making art this way, he became at once creator, collector and curator of each canvas.

Students are combining all of this information into an artist study page of the artist ‘Paul Giovanopoulos’ who takes ideas and concepts of other artists and applies it to his own work, For example – a Pop art Mona Lisa, then a surrealism Mona Lisa etc. 

Students also had a go at their own versions of Giovanopoulos’ typography.
