Athens Street Art

December 19, 2011

Posted by Kanga.

There is a large amount of graffiti tagging in Athens. It is not just in our neighborhood, but we saw it in the tourist area as well. Most of it is just ugly defacing of property, but occasionally there is a little art.

Even the trains are not immune.

So far, we have only seen the painting on modern buildings and structures. There appears to be a respect for ancient structures, leaving them graffiti free.
