The second Poster Monday spot of the day comes from Greece. It is entitled Night Arrows and it was designed by Dimitrios Giovis. He was born in 1970 and studied Greek philology and literature at the University of Ioannina. During his studies he developed a parallel interest in photography and the visual arts, and he recently obtained a degree in graphic design. Dimitrios tell us “the last few years witnessed the rebirth of the art of the poster, which has been enhanced with new narrative means and powerful imagery”.
The title Night Arrows alludes to the “weapons” of beauty and youth, femininity and seduction. It was originated from two different projects. The first one is a photographic project entitled Beauty sessions, and aimed at capturing gestures of femininity through the images of a young woman applying make-up in front of a mirror. The second project was purely graphic, namely a series of illustrations concerning mythology and the ancient gods. The image is the representation of Artemis (Roman Diana), the goddess of the hunt, associated also with moonlight, virginity, inaccessibility etc
