There is a quote that says “Berlin is the new Athens” ! And there are many reasons that can explain this. One of these is how street art is taking more and more space at Athens neighborhoods and Greek street artist are getting famous abroad,like Sonke Wia or .b.
Except the Greek graffities in Athens you can find pieces made by crews from other countries. My most favorite one is located on Pireos street, opposite Technopolis and it is made by the famous Brazilian duo Os Gemeos. For me this is the greatest graffiti ever made in my city.
It is really huge with different colors and images that one leads to the other like making a big urban puzzle.You can look at this for hours on end and keep discovering new elements that makes it more and more extraordinary.
If Salvador Dali was not a painter but a street artist of the ’00s I think he would have created something like this!
PS: After all these years, this graffiti has started to look a little bit… old! But it’s still worth a visit.
