A surrealist trapped in reality, a painter on a quest to find his inspiration, and an ever current
Following its first fashion film, “Anamnesis”, the men’s brand Dánte makes a comeback with
“Lobster”, a film praising introspection and the constant, very personal, search for one’s true self.
Inspiration is found in Salvador Dali, one of the most eccentric and controversial personalities of
contemporary art and surrealism.
After Nikos Psarras, the torch is passed to Stavros Svigkos, the talented actor who portrays a
contemporary version of Dali, trying to find his lobster, the inspiration he needs to express his very
own truth without limitations or restraints.
Inspirer of the idea and founder of the brand, Antonis Papastavrou, places the Spanish painter’s
moustache-symbol, which in itself was a statement against the stereotypes of the hyperrealists of
Dali’s time, in the skilled hands of Kontstantinos Dekoumés who magnificently brings to life the
artistic and personal impasse in which the artist found himself, as well as the symbolic association it
had with the inspiration for his famous painting, the lobster..
