The aim of my posters is to express that dialogue among different cultures ,nations, ethnicities religions and also knowledge and education are essential for peace in the world which is a precondition for further development in all fields. In my first poster you can see two man climbing on a high mountain. Both are holding yellow balls that resemble sun, in each is placed a simbol of knowledge and education – a book. This means that knowledge and education are valuable and essential for understanding and respecting each other. Men are climbing a mountain which represents a hard but reachable goal – mutual respect and understanding . You can see that from their mouth are coming out hands that are shaking – it's a simbol they have found a way to lead a dialogue. They are colored differently but part of them is colored with a same color ( gray, texturized) – that means that no matter what rase,color, nation … we belong to , we have something in common- we are all human. The other picture shows also two men placed opposite and one of them is turned backwards – this means that they may have been situated in distant parts of world but they have also found a way to understand each other so they are shaking hands. I used common water color pen and wood color pen to make a part of this poster and the rest was worked on in computer programs such as Photoshop. I wanted this poster to radiate with optimism so I used serene and clear colors and I wanted to keep it simple so that simbols such as handshake an book would reach the viewer.
