Froso Papadimitriou experiments with multiple art forms, including painting, art installation, drawing, sculpture, video, and craft. Personal experience, observations, and social behaviors and their dynamics have become her raw materials, as she explores the isolation fostered by the proliferation of social networks and platforms. Her work ranges from humorous social commentary to her experience trying to identify her own place within these social exchanges. Sometimes playful, other times symbolic or direct, her work is an invitation to exchange thoughts on the binaries that resonate between our self and our role within social environments.

Papadimitriou was born in Thessaloniki, Greece, where she studied applied arts, illustration/sketching, and graphic design. In 2006 she relocated to London to further her education, completing a BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Middlesex University and an MA in Arts Management and Policy, Curatorial and Educational pathway at Birkbeck University of London.Froso has collaborated with national and international galleries in the United Kingdom, Greece, Turkey, Germany, France, Italy, Finland, Netherlands, the United States, Taiwan, Japan, and China.
