SO this was a literal joke honestly? I was bored and a little loopy the night after my oral surgery so I wanted to practice light stubble and more masculine contouring but after I threw this wig on I decidedly became Dionysus. My mildly drunken intention was to look like Jesus but im too pale for that dream, so Ill take the party god instead lmao.

SHIPPING CONTAINERS BECOME CANVASES FOR GREEK GODS

This week I discovered the work of Spanish graffiti duo Pichi & Avo. Their juxtaposition of the ancient with the modern have me geeking out. This past July, during the North West Walls Street Art Festival in Werchter, Belgium the pair created a canvas out of stacked shipping containers. The result was a towering layer of Greek Gods sprayed in radiant colors, layered with orchestrated bursts of graffiti…take that Olympus.

Greek God Moodboard: Hypnos

Hypnos is the god of sleep, twin brother of Thanatos, god of peaceful death, and son of Nyx, goddess of night, and Erebus, god of darkness. He is said to reside in the Underworld in a cave from which the river Lethe comes from. Hypnos is married to Pasithea, goddess of relaxation and meditation. His children are called the Oneiroi and they consisted of Morpheus, god of dreams; Phobetor, god of nightmares; and Phantasos, god of surreal dreams.

Terracotta head of Dionysus 

Dionysus was the Greek god of wine and pleasure, in the Greek and Roman Period (in roman he is known as Bacchus) he was immensly popular. On the gods head we can see grapes and his beard has typically Greek curls. 

Greek or Roman, Late Hellenistic or early republican Period, around 1st century BC.
