Angelo Plessas


Member Since November 11, 2003

Angelo Plessas is an artist of greek-italian descent and he lives in Athens, Greece. Plessas uses the internet to create websites that are strange, nervous and poetic at the same time. These websites are mostly interactive drawings and Plessas' subjects usually involve femminity and portraits of people around him or many sides of himself. These internet pieces often "cover" the real world as objects like murals, installations, collage drawings and prints.

Lately he has been working with the idea of creating channels of video compilations on YouTube. These compilations consist either of DIY personal homevideos or others he has found online, all of which are mixed within a new online intertextuality.

In 2007 Angelo has founded the "Angelo Foundation" a series of projects focused on the relationship of the internet and culture.

Once in an interview he said: "The internet is the only place to create anymore. It's like being in the jungle and you try to create a civilization. You find a script, you test to see if you can start a fire."

Plessas has shown his work in museums and foundations such as The National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, Greece, Deste Foundation, the 3rd Biennial of Valencia. Since 2005 he maintains the popular blog
