Let a real street artist guide you through the surprising and bustling street art scene of Athens!

When one says "street art", you would immediately think of London, Berlin, New York or Paris. But Athens? The truth is that the city it is immensely rich in graffiti art, which emerged in the '90s but really took off and developed its own distinctive style over the past years. The recent economic crisis has spawned a new burst of creative energy that has turned Athens into what the New York Times calls "a contemporary mecca for street art in Europe", counting 2,000 or so graffiti and street artists painting around the city.
