The Rope Whisperer

Konstantin Dimopoulos

Konstantin’s vibrant neon cowboy provides a warm welcome to visitors to Denver as they travel through this hallway. Kon created this piece by first sketching a cowboy and then converting each sketch line into a neon piece. This icon of western culture is frozen in one of his most well-known activities; throwing a lasso. Kon created this cowboy with a clear connection to Colorado in mind; he writes, “Its movement is something monumentally iconic and reflective of the Colorado cowboy heritage—the West. The lasso in all its trajectory, moving and reshaping itself. The rope and the hand of the cowboy are such powerful imagery of the West.” Kon Dimopolous is well known for the Blue Trees project, a temporary installation that took place in 2017 as part of the Denver Theater District’s Terra Firma series. The Blue Trees are an ongoing part of Konstantin’s art practice and have been installed in several locations around the world. All of Konstantin’s work is rooted in his desire to explore a global human condition and ecology.
