On 20.21/10, we will organize as IRAK, a new linocut workshop in @monitor_fest
, in Crete
IRAK is Hera Spagadorou (Engraver) and Christos Kotsinis (Graphic designer).
They began their collaboration based on their common beliefs about the power that conceals solid design, simple forms and indirect messages.
Apart from designing objects and publications, they organize workshops for children that have to do with the modern forms of various engraving techniques.
In 2017, they organized the project “Rolling over the Village" for the Vovousa Festival, and next year, EΒΓΕ (Greek Graphic Design & Illustration Awards) awarded them with a prize in the CATALOGUE OF ARTISTS’ category, for the ‘’Kids are printing miracles’’ where all the prints engraved by the kids, were gathered in a limited edition catalogue, covered by a special print from a real wooden surface
At MONITOR, one of their members, Christos Kotsinis, will create together with the children imaginative illustrations based on the lyrics of Odysseus Elytis. After an introduction to contemporary engraving and its close relationship to illustration, they will engrave together and afterwards they will print on colorful papers, small memorial posters that will emerge from the lyrics of his poems. Beyond the posters, the children will finally get a small souvenir with the portrait of the poet, looked like a bum
We are very honoured being hosted by @monitor_fest
