Political cartoon exhibition
Towards the end of a crucial political period in Greece and before the beginning of a new one, Dimitris Hantzopoulos (known in Greece from his political cartoons in “Kathimerini” journal), presents a selection of political humorous cartoons inspired by the political and social events which stigmatized the Crisis period in Greece and by the memorandums applied in the four last years.
His sketches are always related to classical painting, so they can easily be presented as autonomous artworks.
In parallel with the political cartoons exhibition, his recent graphic novel “Pope Ioanna”, by 19th century Greek novelist Emmanouil Roidis (published by The Athens Review of Books) as well as a relevant video, will be presented at the Gallery.
The political cartoons are published in a limited edition (1/6 to 6/6), signed by the artist, in Giclée print by Graphicon.
Dimitris Hantzopoulos was born in 1956 in Patras. He studied Physics at the University of Athens and Animation at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Vancouver, Canada.
In Greece he has worked as a political cartoonist in the News and since 2015 in the newspaper KATHIMERINI.
He has been professionally involved in painting and has exhibited his works at Gallery 7 and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Crete, Rethymnon. His books have been published by Agra Publications and his latest graphic novel “Pope Ioanna”...
