Louise Kyriakou

Louise Kyriakou is a Melbourne based painter and ceramic artist who playfully explores concepts around community and connection, and the patterns that arise from the repetitive nature of everyday life. 

Her current ceramic practice concentrates on the creation of contemporary figurative forms that combine the use of flat slab forms and sgrafitto decoration techniques.

The stylised characters in all her work are a natural progression from her background in design and illustration. Bold colour palettes and strong geometric shapes intersect to create structured but lively compositions.
