This particular work by the multifaceted artist Yannis Gaitis is notable for its symbolic substance reflective power artistic intelligence and design skill. It is suggestively political with the central oversized form of the fragile flower surrounded by the expressionless, mute, rigid, and tragically identical congregated forms. In color contrast to the background the artist juxtaposes his black and white figure on a paradoxically smaller scale than the flower. The caricatured forms/subjects with their geometric surroundings are reduced to a medium of irony and social criticism. The strong contours combined with the dynamic function of the line assemble the volumes and masterfully hold the magnificent composition together.
