Transient Art On The Walls Of Athens: 1.Graffiti

Theme: The Line Motif 2

This seems to be the same artist featured in this blog in a previous entry. The winding, spiral tracing of the line is similar and the themes again have to do with the sea but this time they are in their majority black and white. The sea, pirates, boats, couples and women with flowing hair are the main themes of this artist.

The following graffiti was found on a rusty metal door of an abandoned old house in Athens in the area of Exarcheia. The rusty brown of the metal sheet contrasted perfectly with the black and white design and provided a wonderful canvas for a unique piece of art with references to Picasso and the comic book world all in one.
