Panos Tsagaris

Panos Tsagaris (b.1979, Athens, Greece) is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in New York. He earned a BFA in 2004 from the Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design in Vancouver, Canada. Tsagaris’ practice has always been informed by his interest in the spiritual and the mystical.With key philosophical first edition texts as his guideline, he explores through his work spiritual notions of transformation as those appear in different esoteric traditions and mythologies. Central in his practice is the self-transformative process and how it materializes in contemporary life, and in today's global socio-political matrix, on an individual as well as on a collective level. Through his work Tsagaris aspires to capture the fragile connection between the seen and the unseen, the conscious and the unconscious and the material with the immaterial, to offer visual insights in the value and everlasting presence of change and impermanence.
