We met with Sofia, our guide (and also a street artist) at Gazi metro station. Anna, one of the co-founders also joined us in order to make sure that everything was perfect for our private street art tour.
Sofia showed us places that only locals know and explained why street art is so famous nowadays in Greece. We also made a coffee stop at a very nice square downtown! The tour was great, we took many photos as souvenirs and explored Athens in a very alternative and local way.

Description

During our alternative street art tour you’ll learn about the history and origins of this global underground phenomenon and discover the secret codes of street artists.

Your guide, a street artist themselves, 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 such as Metaxourgheio, and discuss the reasons why street art has flourished on its walls.

This tour, in particular, focuses on the social and political aspects of the Greek street art scene. What political statements are the artists making and why? How has the economic crisis affected how people express themselves on the streets of the capital?

Artworks rapidly change in the streets of Athens, essentially providing an outdoor, large contemporary art gallery- if you know where to look!
