Images of street art in Plaka under dim yellow lights. Athens is covered in graffiti, now more than ever, and the historical centre is no exception. While most graffiti tagging is just crap and degrading – especially where listed buildings and monuments are involved – there is some really elaborate and interesting stuff to be found.

The patterns, stripes and fake palm tree are from Faust, a music bar we just happened to walk by. I was attracted by its vintage, kitsch burlesque theatrical decor, but we only stayed long enough to look around and steal some snapshots.

Athens, 15-19 June 2015
