Dimitris feels that the humorous message behind his pop sculptures in his photographs is highly relevant to the present situation in his country, although it directly refers to the absurd, almost hysterical levels to which religion has been pitted against politics in the US.
Religion often serves as an emotional ‘lender of last resort’ in times of crisis. The idea for this series of maquette sculptures, comes from Christian church signs and billboards in the US. By stripping these religious quotes away from their physical and emotive context, the ‘message’ becomes more absolute, almost surreal. To emphasize this further, the text size has been exaggerated in scale (compared to the figurines) and colour. The project is somewhat ‘street’ influenced by large scale advertising and slogan graffiti. The title of the series generates a contrast: The notion of God-sent miracles as an integral part of religious faith, against the marvels of man-made, modern age, industrial technology and it’s products such as fluorescent materials and colours.
The photographs were shot by Dimitris in collaboration with Michalis Dalanikas.

The mouse that roars, for the lulz and more! Anonymouse, by David Aja, a professional illustrator based in Madrid, Spain.
Bruno Ganz’s brilliant and electrifying turn as Hitler in Der Untergang has been parodied many times before. The spoofs were created by mashing up scenes from the film with fake English subtitles. Obviously, it’s funny only for people who can’t speak the German language.
And now, there is one more addition to the list. The latest viral video shows Hitler ranting against Hollywood’s fat-cats for changing the Watchmen movie’s ending. Or more specifically, the absence of a multi-tentacled monster in it.
