Basil Papoutsidis

Basil Papoutsidis is a practising, Melbourne-based artist who previously completed a BFA (Visual Art) at the University of Melbourne (VCA) in 2014. Through a fanaticism with material behaviour, Papoutsidis explores the sculptural contexts of formalist abstraction. With each work, the artist revises sculptural traditions from the vantage point of vehicular forms; constructed from metal, fractured lines deviate the organic to the geometric. His work sits within an arena where theoretical design principles face-off with the realities of construction, and where materials are re-awakened through continual transformation.
