Athens street art

Having mentioned graffiti art in a previous post, I was interested to read about it in a piece on Punk Archaeology.

I have been interested in Athens street art for some time now, and I have walked around a bit, taking pics and sometimes meeting the artists. Quite frankly, I would like to see more of the stuff I am illustrating here and less of the ostentatious metropolitan art Athenian mayors are notoriously fond of (more on this soon).

Here's a small collection of Athenian street art from my Flickr account - there's more to look at, there's more to discover -

First, two works by Joad:




Joad again:


The reclusive Pete, Athens' dark prince (see P.13's great photo here, and a Flickr shrine made by one of his fans):




And, finally, Dreyk at work sometime in October 2007:
