Graffiti: Social Expressions of Athens

Published by:

Graffiti is a social expression. The street art reflects the thoughts of society in general. By observing them, we can grasp the social sentiment at the grass-roots level.

Athens is not really known on graffiti landscape as Berlin, Buenos Aires, or New York; however, there is a lot to explore and admire for a graffiti hunter in Athens.

Here are some gems that I found. Enjoy 🙂

The alternative world

The world is being created by different people

Black and White and colourful chemistry

“System of a Fraud”

Abstractified

The digital age

Discrete aging

Men at work

A video game frame

The matrix

The war of love

Not so sweet dreams

The subtle. (It is an interesting one. The original painter did not create the teeth!! The subtle change flipped the meaning.)

The helping hand

The fear

A devil

The battleground and survival

The supreme Parthenon

The roots of thoughts

Character crafting
