Based between Athens, GR and Los Angeles, CA, Polina Miliou (b. 1990) creates playful art objects and furniture using paper mache. Her technique involves treating each piece as a unique character and nourishing it through a process of patting, slapping and caressing. Miliou explores the cuteness and awkwardness in monolithic shapes that project forms of primitivism and anonymous art and architecture. She holds an architecture diploma from National Technical University of Athens, Greece. She has worked on various design studios in Los Angeles and in 2020 she participated in Sundance Film Festival as a production designer for the mixed reality performance Anti-Gone by artist Theo Triantafyllidis.
