    Sold with a photo-certificate from Mr. Pavlos Dionyssopoulos, dated 17 mars 2009.
    Pavlos was one of the leading members of the Pop movement in France, a reputation gained through his rule-breaking use of paper. Through the avant-garde manipulation of coloured paper, Pavlos creates sculptures that at once appear solid and simple in form but are however extremely delicate and intricate on closer inspection. Having represented Greece in the 1980 Venice Biennale, Pavlos is one of the greatest exponents of Modern Greek Art.
