For his immediate comments and analysis of current affairs, Absent heads for the canvas that he finds »on the route from indebted homes to unfulfilling jobs and back«. Between cartoon and street-art, his paintings always carry humour and irony. Covering the period of state troubling finance crisis, Absent's political satire posters are by now a part of the permanent collection of the Greek National Museum of History.
"With - at a first sight - rude, explicit and highly personal visual attacks, restoration of balance between the people and authority (real or wannabe) is sought, empowering the reader through his own laughter."
