Athens - based Michalis Baboussis is the creative mind behind the alternative online project The Race Behind the Hill. Being a multitalented person with styling, photography, fashion design, creative writing, video art and graphic design among his interests and activities, Michalis enters into a dialogue process through each of his different roles and collaborations. He started his artistic journey after graduating from AKTO school of Arts & Design doing great collaborations with the Callas, art photographers Spyros Staveris and Photoharrie, artist H.O.P.E and online art mag just to name a few. His deeper need for communication and dialogue with more greek and foreign artists urged him to create The Race Behind The Hill platform in 2009, making it a constant in-progress project based on DIY aesthetics. The strictly black & white, male-figured images combined with poster poems attached in urban locations connote the artist's intention to create a rather different, virtual human race, inspired by the principles of mysticism and neoplatonism. I think it's one of the best greek online projects, loaded with amazing images, don't forget to visit.
