Every now and again the internet throws a gem into your path, and for me it happened this week with not one but two creatives; illustrator Joost Stokhof, who goes by the name “The Things We Are”, and designer Nick Liefhebber, in the form of this riso-printed zine. Entitled Chaos or rather χάος, the project combines the compositions and patterns of Greek vase paintings with the restricted colours of risograph printing, to create a collection of 13 images based on the pandemonium from which the gods first arose in Greek mythology.
The resulting exhibition and limited edition zine is a real treat; full of joyous colour and little naked god characters wearing lion heads going about their daily life, with an aesthetic that stays true to classical Greek artwork. Rarely has mythology been so brilliantly appropriated.
