The artist’s ingenious sketches are seen within a historical framework and the exhibition traces the contemporary significance and aesthetic excellence of his satire which defies time!
Bost is today as modern – from a political point of view - as ever. Focusing on his legendary characters, Mother Greece worn out by bloodsheds, Miss Unemployed Girl and Mr Ravenous, his cartoons are very much related to the crisis in modern-day Greece.
The exhibition further highlights Bost’s people-friendly perspective, which exceeds party-line politics and states his faith in participation as a democratic ethos.
A significant section of the exhibition is a homage paid to Bost by modern cartoonists.
