Athenian Graffiti Prints

I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving! Today I want to officially introduce a collaboration that I've been working on for the past few weeks with the awesome, The Goddess of the Hunt. The blog's mission is to deliver food-for-thought for the contemporary and antsy Greek spirit, by digging up the undiscovered and under-promoted projects of Greek creativity from around the world. I was interviewed by the site's creator over a year ago, and since then we've come together again to produce something special: limited edition Athenian graffiti letterpress prints.
With the political climate that currently surrounds its citizens, Athens has become a hotbed for graffiti. Yet sometimes, the most poignant messages are lesser in size & sophistication and are often overlooked. We created this limited edition letterpress series to give these artistic renderings of real Athenian graffiti a life of their own: one that preserves their poetry and emotional symbolism. Click below to see how they're made, or snag your own at the Goddess of the Hunt online boutique!
