Which city will you think when one says "street art"? You will think of London, Berlin, New York or Paris. But Athens? The truth is that the city is immensely rich in graffiti art, which emerged in the '90s but really took off and developed its own distinctive style over the past years. Especial during the recent economic crisis, a new burst of creative energy has turned Athens into what the New York Times calls "a contemporary mecca for street art in Europe". Athens is counting 2,000 or so graffiti and street artists painting around the city.
