Incredible Mosaics inspired by the African bricks by Charis Tsevis


Visual designer Charis Tsevis pleased us once more with his magnificent latest work. A series of artworks inspired by the Mandela House in Soweto and other similar machbox houses in Africa.
The basic element Charis used is the brick which he borrowed directly from the typical matchbox houses in the African townships, because Charis sees the brick as a symbol of people’s creativity. “A symbol of courage to build a safe place for the family. My bricks are sometimes stable and others unstable. And they are filled with other forms of African creativity. Fabrics, art, leather, animal skins…”

His digital files became exceptional artworks when he printed them on wood in 8 colors, collaborating with the great team of Quality Printing Solutions.

Anyone can admire these amazing pieces of art at the African restaurant in Athens, Greece, named Sasi’s.
