Selection of works and applications






Born and raised in Thessaloniki Greece, Popi Krouska lives and works in Athens.
Degree in economics from the University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki.
Degree in architecture from the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki.
During her studies she takes up pottery, working with clay, forms and glazing.
1975 – 1985: Works as an architect, designing and constructing projects. At the same time she works more systematically on her pottery, adopting a purely geometric visual approach and building surfaces out of pieces of oven-baked and glazed clay. During this time she applies several of her artworks in buildings.
1986 – 1997: Sets up an art space in Kolonaki, Athens, initially called ‘Popi Κ.’ and later ‘Thema’, which becomes the hub for a team of designers and visual artists and hosts various exhibitions and activities of the team. Up to 1992, the artist herself curated and organized six group exhibitions of design in which she participated with her own works, and a competition for chair design with real-life models exhibited at the House of Cyprus in Athens, in 1991.
From 1994 to 1997 ‘Thema’ served as a venue for artistic activities. Popi Krouska curated and organized the group exhibition  ‘The multiple faces of a window’ in 1994, in which  she participated with her own work, and the group show ‘Six artistic interventions – Athens 1995, works for public spaces’.
In the meantime, over these years her interest gradually turned to digital technology, and her work and quests focused on digitally processed images and video.
