Panayotis Lianos is an artist, architect and tattooist based in Athens. He is a graduate of the School of Architecture of the National Technical University of Athens, has a Master of Fine Arts from the Athens School of Fine Arts and currently is a PhD candidate in Architecture at NTUA.
His artistic research focuses on the methods of collective artistic production that can, potentially, create cracks within institutional frameworks. The mediums he employs span from installations to digital interdisciplinary fetishes, composing a vocabulary that fluctuates between bits and gestures, blood and data. His work has been presented in various institutions and art spaces such as: Urbanism\Architecture Bi-City Biennale (UABB), Hong Kong & Shenzhen; Saigon, Athens; State of Concept, Athens; Eight, Athens; Neo Cosmos, Athens; P.E.T. Projects, Athens; Ammophila, Elafonisos; Michalis Cacoyannis Foundation, Athens and Union Pacific, London, among others.
Panayotis is a member of the Laboratory for the Urban Commons, the fluid artistic collaborations method brackets, and the Ofrah Fergal Kasei practice. Via the aforementioned symbioses a series of co-authored works, interventions and publications have been produced; some are included in private and public collections, such as the National Museum of Contemporary Art, while others exist in self-managed and public spaces. He has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS in 2022.
