DIGITARIA COLLECTIVE

DIGITARIA COLLECTIVE indicates the  label’s collaborative works with artists coming from different creative paths, from photography and illustration up to product design and performance. It will enclose all the synergetic projects, limited editions of prints, design objects and fanzines. Most of the creative partners are already being involved with Digitaria projects. The ‘Collective’ project is very important to us, as it wraps our philosophy for exchanging ideas and firms our will for creative thinking and interaction.

DIGITARIA COLLECTIVE | ANIMALIA BY EFI CHALIKOPOULOU

DIGITARIA COLLECTIVE | JACK/JACKIE BY PARIS CHAVIARAS

“ It is an event that, over and beyond its historical character, held a morbid fascination for me because of its cinematic elements. I always saw the notorious Zapruder footage more as a pop monument than as a documentary. It is a moment in time that, if anything else, has the same age as me.” Paris Chaviaras

DIGITARIA COLLECTIVE | EMPTY BY ZART 83

 

“EMPTY, is a series of four portraits that represent the state of mind I was in, when I created them. Each one of them reflects my feelings, as I was living a life full of frustration in an environment that sucked my energy and lust for life. Male and female, black and white, blood and tears, curves and straight lines.” Zart 83
