The Glow

by Pradeep Kaniyadi


Poster for 2010, International Year of the Rapprochement of Cultures

The poster’s strong foundation is the intercultural dialogue and diversity shown through human figures ‘moving forward’ to establish a harmonious relationship. In the A1-sized poster the people will be distinctly seen - as they move from left to right, they gradually get closer to shake hands.

The two human heads intersecting reflect the need of intercultural understanding for a more peaceful world. The glowing center of this inter-cultural knowledge is depicted through a multitude of colors as opposed to people in the other parts of the poster. All cultures in the world must share this rich understanding of cultures for harmonious coexistence.
