Transcending Cultures

by George Tsolpakis


More often than not, people concentrate on what separates cultures instead of what unites them and brings them closer. A culture both defines and is defined by its arts, gastronomy, technological advancements, fashion and customs. These certain aspects sometimes transcend the boundaries of their culture in order to be adopted and embraced by other ones. The concept of the poster is based on this exact notion: cultural traits and products that once helped define the culture they originated from become integral parts of other cultures throughout the world. The emphasis is on what brings us together rather than what separates us.
