Athens Graffiti Gallery

I know most people fall into  opposing camps on the matter of graffiti: they either love it or hate it.  I’m firmly in the street art lovers category.  I understand that it’s not always appropriate, like the instance my friend always cite of tagging in Florence.  However,  I feel graffiti, the artistic, non tagging kind, can do a lot for an otherwise boring neighborhood or brutal communist-era block buildings.  Plus, when done well, it often adds to the sense of community in a neighborhood.
