"SOLIDARITY!"



Poster promoting solidarity between the nations in financial crisis, all under the red banner of revolution and change! The world "solidarity" is written in the language of the flag mentioned. The Spanish flag has the colors of the 2nd Spanish republic and not of the fascist regime of Franko that still remains today. There was a simpler version without Ireland but after a ton of requests and comments Ireland was added as well.

I would like to personaly thank everyone for making more than 1800 shares of that poster possible. We might be far from each other, but when we protest on the streets of our countries, we march together. Brothers against the capitalist crisis, UNITE!

"the manifestation"

Oil pastel on paper (25x19 cm). After watching one of the biggest manifestations of SYRIZA and of the Greek Left in 03/05/2012, I wished to express my way by drawing this on my scetchbook. In a way that made me feel closer to all the colors, the lights, the people, the songs and the hope that was all around that night.    I am living so far from my homeland but that drawing  brought me right in the center of Athens as I was watching the live stream of the event.

"Almond trees" SYRIZA Poster

It also bacame a song by Mikis Theodorakis and sang by Maria Farantouri. The text on the top-left corner is a summarised version of the poem.

"A little bit more and we will see
The almond trees blosom
the marbles shining under the sun
and the sea waving once again.
Lets rise up a little bit more
a little bit higher, a little bit higher!"

The poem expreses hope and a better tomorrow for Greece as if a new spring is coming to shine over the country. The couple with the red flag is an edited version from a poster by the youth organization  EPON (Greek union of youth) under the left front EAM (national liberation front),in the 2nd world war. On the poster all the elements of the poem are shown with an allegory to the Greek countryside and  history all under the red flag and the sun.
