Vicky’s Lavranou “RAinpatterns”
Vicky Lavranou is an experienced post-graduate architect from Athens Greece, with over of 20 years involvement in architectural design and large scale projects.
Starting in 2008, Vicky decided to start "recycling" her architectural drawings into patterns, mainly as an artistic defuse and effort to connect architecture and painting.
Architectural artistic pattern collections started creating by Vicky’s digital “process art” methods with obvious influences from her favorite architectural and art movements (Deconstruction, Constructivism and Expressionism).
Her project “Recycling Architecture in Patterns” (RAinpatterns) is based on an artistic software processing of her architectural drawings which final creates her patterns collection.
Vicky’s patterns creations are based on the principles of “process art” (an artistic movement as well as a creative sentiment where the end product of art and craft, the “objet d’art”, is not the principal focus / wikipedia). But even the initiation of this “process” is always one of her architectural drawings, artistic influences from her favorite art movements as Impressionism, Expressionism and Constructivism are rather obvious.
AIM: Vicky’s Lavranou RAinpatterns project aspires to establish itself as an innovative patterns process. The evolution of Vicky’s architectural patterns through visual art, nature and the rhythms in the history of architecture, in unique visual morphology issues, is a process that Vicky has being devoted more. Their applications are unlimited in fashion and architectural industries and Vicky is willing to explore and discover all these areas, by using her long experience in design and manufacture. Everyone interested for collaboration is welcome!
