Full description
Artworks rapidly change in the streets of Athens, essentially providing an outdoor, large contemporary art gallery- if you know where to look! Discover the incredible street art of Athens with our talented guide and street artist. Gain an understanding of the culture, social commentary and politics behind them. Witness the genius and skill of these artists from the works of bold iNO to the colours of Vasmoulakis, through murals, post-graffiti and guerilla art. Explore their playgrounds in neighborhoods such as Monastiraki, Psyrri, Metaxourgheio and Gazi. See modern-day Athens through a prism of colours, creation and political thought. Your guide, a talented street artist herself, will tell you about the different styles, techniques and terminology: from stencils, paste-ups, throw-ups and bombings to tags, pieces, murals, installations and wild-style graffiti! Together you’ll explore small streets in up-and-coming neighbourhoods and discuss the reasons why street art has flourished on its walls.

I was surprised at the greatness of Athens' graffiti

I was fascinated by the graffiti depicting Lucanikos, an anti-austerity dog I saw on YouTube. I was surprised by the high artistic quality of Athens' graffiti and the vivid sense of the times. Thanks to the guide, I was able to walk on my own way smoothly and get to know various things, which was really interesting.

A very different and exciting way to see the city, at the same time it was extremely interesting to see and understand the beautiful street art that is seen in the city. The guide was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable, and her English very easy to understand.
