Graphic depictions of people can be different; sometimes realistic, sometimes surrealistic. Caricature holds a special place in illustration and one of the most talented illustrators today is definitely Stavros Damos, a brilliant Greek illustrator.
Stavros Damos is an artist based in Thessaloniki. He became world-famous with his illustrations for The Washington Post and BBC History Magazine. His work truly takes advantage of a sketchy, rough look. In his caricatures, Damos pays special attention to detail – every line on a person’s face is rendered that way for a reason, giving them that unique, exaggerated look.
