With and a few bold strokes of a marker, an unknown graffiti artist managed to accurately sketch the city on the canvas of a blue wall.
The city is pictured as seen from the west, with the Acropolis on the south and Mt. Lycabettus on the left. In between, one sees the parliament, the columns of Olympic Zeus and several other monuments, summarily drawn.
The walls of Athens are full of graffiti. While few of them are worth the spray used to make them, there are occasions when one walks by a real work of art. There are quarters that are almost like open-air galleries. In my next post I will talk about the city’s graffiti in more detail, discuss its evolution and types, with examples of each kind.
