• Les Historiques

In the early 60’s, « facing the abstract logorrhoea which took possession of painting », Pavlos decided to head towards an « objective » material. Once he discovered the posters in parisian underground, the painter started his sculptures, using shredded posters collected in printing shops. If Pavlos distinguished himself from poster artists of New Realism (affichistes), it is because he chose to work the edge of paper.
