The art of getting away through Handmade Jewellery at madebylilian.comLilian Syrigou was born and raised in Athens and Syros - an island in the Cyclades, Greece. She studied Jewellery Design in MOKUME School and has been actively involved with art since 2005. After a very successful career in Athens, she made a life-changing decision to move to Berlin in 2012 in search for a place that could enhance the quality of her art. She carried her dreams and art to another country, only to evolve into an art of getting carried away! Silver is her beloved material! She paints it, combines it with colourful ribbons, silk fabrics, lace, semi-precious stones, sequins and beads, materials that seem as boundless as her own imagination. Others buoyant sources of inspiration for her are nature, ethnic dancers, fairytale characters, everyday life, sources that may have a whimsical quality, but are somehow tethered to reality as well. Lilian reached artistic maturity in Berlin and started creating jewellery made of wood, gold-plated bronze, applying minimality of shape. Lilian’s new project, “Οne day I‘ll travel the world” bridges the gap between geography and her necklace creations that depict places she has lived in, been to or wishes to visit someday. Discover her work at www.madebylilian.com, in solo or group exhibitions, at selected stores and galleries, as well as in her workshop, “Κunst moment atelier”.
