Dreyk the Pirate: a Unique Graffiti Artist

Monday 06.18.2012 , Posted by

Walking the streets of Athens, one encounters many different graffiti styles: from badly written declarations of everlasting devotion to a sports team or political leaning, to sworn love confessions and small stencils. Sadly, it seems that everyone qualifies as a graffiti “artist”, given that they have enough money to buy a marker or spray paint. Few emerge from this scene displaying a distinctive style and adorning athenian walls with something that truly makes our city more beautiful. One of the exceptions is Dreyk the Pirate.

no boogieman under my bed-just a couple in my head

Picasso said: “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” Indeed, many of us who are in the art field find ourselves here because as children we continued to paint when others stopped. Perhaps some parents tried to dissuade us — even prohibit the occupation we chose — in order to follow something more… ”serious”. Others more fortunate, had the support of family who, recognizing our passion, prompted to us to follow the profession that we now practice.

The Whimsical Illustrations of Christina Tsevis

Wednesday 11.17.2010 , Posted by

Today we bring you a sampling of the wonderful, whimsical world of illustration as created by Christina Tsevis, AKA crosti. Based in Athens, Greece, Christina is a freelance visual artist who draws her inspiration from a wide spectrum of influences ranging from love lost, to pop music, to cultural traditions, to Spanish poetry. While on the surface her work often appears light-hearted, it is often bittersweet, drawing the viewer in and provoking insightful thought. We feel very honored to feature such a talented individuals work.

Our man Paul met up briefly with Christina via skype for a quick, on-the-fly interview about the illustrations below and posted it on his personal video blog. Paul has known Christina’s brother for a number of years and we’ve posted in the past about his amazing Neofuturistic Vector illustrations. [Read more…]
