The Old City of Nicosia is unique in many respects and since the Turkish invasion of 1974 it’s probably the world’s last divided city. In many ways it has been caught in time and provides a snapshot of the styles and texture of the seventies. I visit it regularly and although it is now being rapidly redeveloped (there’s a huge Zaha Hadid project going on there) and much of the seventies feeling is disappearing, the intertextuality on the walls and surfaces of the old city is extremely active. It has provided me with much inspiration and material for my work and I always look forward to time spent there.
More posters from The Office gallery in the Old City in Nicosia. Because of the paper used the posters actually endure for a long time, being very difficult to remove and consequently they constantly change and evolve, literally over years.
