DES IGNE R’ NOT E


Jan 6th, 2013 Having coffee with friends Tina, Lydia and Jad, on a typical Sunday's midday... - Guys, we should make ourselves c r e a t i v e . - Yeah, I think so too. But how? - I have a thing for magazines. I wish I could just make one from scratch. We're going through hard times though... - So why we don't just make a web magazine? - You think? - Sure! So, this is how the idea of SHOOT ME! was born. With a cup of coffee in our hands. With an appetite for creating, wit h dre ams and des ire s...

As my favourite artist Schiller puts it in his track “Dreams”: aspirations >>>>>>> ...Our dreams, our desires and colourful need to be taken seriously, t r e a t e d w i t h i m p o r t a n c e . If you push them asided you suppress what’s best in you and end up an empty man...

Ba ng!

Bang! Is.

P.S.: On this first issue of our magazine, we'd like to thank Evi, Alexandros Kesidis, Spiros Serafeim, George Andreadis, George Pantoulas

but most of all

Antonis.

SHOOTING UT SIDE George Pantoulas' exhibition of digital paintings, entitled "7", opened on Wednesday, February 13th, 2013 at Hoxton. All the way back to the 13th century, from the works of Hieronymus Bosch and Dante's "Divine comedy" 'till the 1995's american thriller film "Seven", many artists have concerned themselves with the seven deadly sins. George Pantoulas in his exhibition - Who among us considers "7" puts the question: himself pure? You are one of the "7", drawn to your human nature. Besides, it is simply "humanly" to have such a desire for lust, pride, gluttony, envy, wrath, greed and sloth. You, the one next to you, the one across the room. We are all around us and everywhere. We're all "7" of us at Hoxton. The exhibition "7" ends on Tuesday, April 9th, 2013.

Marianna Panagiotoudis on Petros Petropoulos' work Being naked is a physical state which is usually perceived either as lacking originality or just common and can rarely have another notional or academic approach. Meanwhile, society is trying to put nudity subject to strict restrictions as far as culture, legislation and "taboos" go. Nudity is often considered as a "natural" state because, after all - w e w e r e a l l b onrank e d but in reality due to those sociocultural restrictions, nudity is far from what society accepts as common and natural. >>>>>>>

It is quite possibly a matter of self-cencorship that defines that " f i n e l i n e " between Petros Poulopoulos on his atartistic nude and pornography, tempt to bend the rules of a but even today, it is what most artists take under considera-single category, created a collection of photographs with tion for their work. an upfront sexuality leaning towards western society's advertising culture, while, on the other hand, places the naked body significantly symbolical setting.
