Athens Street Art
Athens is not a city one normally associates with a creative street art culture. Yet, as Jerry Goldstein records in this 336-page, superbly illustrated hardback, wonderful works of street art can be found by exploring the backstreets of the Greek capital, in spaces not immediately obvious or visible.
Most of the groundbreaking 410 murals and street logos in this book were produced between 2006 and 2007. As much of this artwork has since disappeared, this book is both a record of the boundless creativity of the genre and an appreciation of its artists. It will inspire and inform enthusiasts and students of street and urban culture alike and will enthral all those interested in the contemporary Greek art scene.
"The works illustrated here demonstrate an undoubted pictorial show of iconic power, boldness, imagination and artistic skill. They constitute a unique form of communication, one that - even though hidden - immediately stands out in the low-rise, grey, nondescript Athenian skyline."
(Katerina Gregos, Curator of Contour in Mechelen, Belgium)
