Lemnos Folk Art Decorations

Lemnos Folk Art Decorations

A couple of quotes that I’m sure the writer would not have applied to these photos,
but which I am indicating some relationship.

Greek  Design and Decoration  by Dimitris Philippides

To incorporate the material of decoration into a general outline of art could be a dangerous undertaking: equally to disregard its mere existence would certainly be damaging. The consequences of our approach will be revealed gradually as we wander through the wonderful ‘forest of symbols’ awaiting us.

Each era, by right, sees and interprets the past through its own eyes, distorting reality accordingly.

Graffiti Fonts Today

In recent decades, graffiti has moved from an urban nuisance to a professional business thanks to the rise of street art as a serious creative force. And with the art form’s ever growing in popularity there is now a wealth of graffiti font styles.
