Insides collection

With this work I want to question against the backdrop of the finality of human life as well as to address the fact that each body undergoes metamorphoses due to emotional and personal processes. Rather than seeing the human body as a fixed entity I decided to explore one more time the emotional and fragile side, I want to fragment bodies using a non-flesh or skin material and create my wearable objects/sculptures. Doing this work I want to exhibit an almost uncanny realism, so that when the viewer observed it, seems to be subjected to a constant transformation between growth and decay. And offer to the people a kind of monumental, fragile creations with a touch of tenderness that makes you feel that you are in a trip to hell and back where you will discover how ephemeral is the human being.


Based in the heart of the historical center of Athens, Popeye loves Olive Art Space is dedicated to promoting the Art of Contemporary Jewelry.

Our mission is to propose to both wider and specialized audiences, the most cutting edge jewelry, based on the evaluation of their craftsmanship, quality, concept, form and artistic value. We are the advocates of this inspiring field in Greece.

We create space for an open dialogue and a meeting place for local and international artists, designers and creative minds. We present the work of emerging and established artists through solo, group exhibitions, selected projects and we publish our own catalogs.

We wish to embrace the unique, controversial, sentimental, progressive, political and sometimes extreme work of the jewelry field!
