Well-come
Poster
27.5″ × 39.3″
2015


Poster made during Majid Abbasi poster workshop. The purpose of workshop participants is to design a poster on the European crisis of the refugees, to reflect on the greatest humanitarian crisis of the twenty-first century. I started with a very simple concept: the hypocrisy of people. This is the way in which European countries give the “welcome” to refugees fleeing the horrors of war. I deliberately misspelled the word “wel-come”, to play with the double reading of the word well / hell. I felt that the word “Hell-come” has a very powerful meaning, a sort of “welcome to hell.”
