One of the complaints I heard about Athens prior to my recent visit was the amount of graffiti (I'm talking ugly tagging here) covering the city. From what I've noticed during my European travels, graffiti is prevalent everywhere, including on the tiny residential street that I live on in Vilnius. That being said, I didn't notice a higher frequency of graffiti in Athens compared to elsewhere in Europe. What I did notice in Athens was incredible pieces of colorful, bold, street art. I'm actually not even sure that I can pick a favorite out of this bunch. Can you? What is your favorite piece from this collection?
Which piece is your favorite? Do you like street art? Do you think there is a difference between street art and tagging (graffiti)?
