59 photos of graffiti from Athens, Greece

The best and worst aspect of walking around in Athens, Greece is the graffiti that covers most surfaces.

It is the best, because I saw beautiful, creative spontaneous art, political messages I am sympathetic too and ones I cannot agree with, preordered murals, and first of all a wide range of self-expression. I also saw tagging all over and less sophisticated forms of expressing anger and dissatisfaction. or as Maria Chatzidakis wrote:  “The current socioeconomic and political crisis in Greece has rendered Athens a living city canvas that attracts artists, art lovers, young people, tourists, journalists, and photographers.” Below is a selection of 59 graffiti from the pictures I shot on my week-long visit. Enjoy, be inspired, or outraged.
