Postfolk is the work of Maria-Olga Vlachou a Greek graphic designer who have become intrigued by the design potential of the motifs in Greek folk art. These motifs have formed part of the graphical lexicon of traditional Greek culture for many generations, but are now an object of mostly curatorial or antiquarian interest. In short, Postfolk works to relocate these elements within a new visual context and physical form, most of all in the pure brilliant colors of silk-screen prints. “I think of my work as digital handicraft, a kind of digital embroidery. In creating these figures pixel by pixel, I want to pay homage to the fine needlework of the countless women who stitched these figures in table runners and toppers, on pillowcases and coverlets, and in so doing literally inscribed figures of joy – a pair of peacocks, a couple in love, a bouquet of flowers – in the very fabric of domestic life.”
