Greek Street Art

The first thing I noticed about Athens when I arrived is the incredible amount of graffiti.  There seems to be no area spared from the onslaught of paint cans. Most of it is simply graffiti, but some ascends into the realm of street art. Here’s some of my favorites so far:
Kerameikos, Athens:

The schools are a prime target, this is in Kardista:
