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.
That said, Athens is a pretty interesting place all on its own, and probably doesn’t need any graffiti. Luckily, for the fans like me, the artists are everywhere.
This gallery is on the hill itself, smack dab in the middle of a beautiful pedestrian/scooter area:
