Lauri Panopoulos | Fashion Art Inspired by Technology
Fashion and Future
My interest in fashion, technology and science fiction inspired me to create these one-of-a-kind figures. Each figure is individually sculpted, painted, wigged and costumed by hand and adorned in fine fabrics, semi precious gems and computer parts.
Athena Ex Machina
Athena Ex Machina is part of an ongoing body of work that questions intelligence and technology blurring the borders between human potential and the omnipotent. It tells the tale of a young machine/woman who dwells in a metropolitan city of the future.
This unique work was sculpted and sewn entirely by hand using traditional techniques.
Oil and enamel painted polymer clay resin, blown glass eyes, goat hair, silk, Swarovski crystals, printed circuit board, mounted on Apple Mac Mini 19.5 x 9 x 6.5 inches
Paper Doll Fashions
I began my career as a fashion illustrator and found expression in creating these characters. Each one of my paper dolls is a unique design and illustration.
