During this residency at Kypseli Print Studio in Athens, I have explored the street graffiti around the city of Athens, documenting the build-up of textures and details within the urban environment. The old phone boxes have encapsulated my interest. Mostly obsolete, they now act as a surface for advertising with endless layers of flyers and stickers. The architecture of the box itself creates an environment, inviting you in, something which I intend to explore by creating architectural environments with her prints, inviting the viewer to observe these layered details which would otherwise be missed.
This residency has made me to explore new places and creative ideas in Athens and has allowed me to create a body of work which has a different level of freedom, being outside of an education setting.
Made April to May 2022.
