Graffiti and street art: No Respect

Graffiti and street art: No Respect

The Onassis Cultural Centre is staging an in-house exhibition which sets out to document the Greek graffiti and street art scene as this manifests itself on the streets of Athens and other cities around Greece today.
Each of the forty works on display was created in situ by a different artist, some of the many who responded to the OCC's open invitation to exhibit. The works cover the walls, columns and floor of the exhibition space as well as cars placed within it.

Eleni Mylonas: The Cursed Serpent

Renowned Greek visual artist Eleni Mylonas, who lives and works in New York, presents the chapter of her work entitled The cursed serpent.
She draws her inspiration from helmets worn by protestors during the Arab Spring: DIY constructions intended to protect their wearers from stones tossed in running clashes on roads and squares. Paintings, video, an installation and photographs by the artist with hats made of household objects and garbage, constitute her commentary on the daring and imagination of the protesters.

    With its undisputable charm, this area is one of the most frequented by visitors and natives alike. Plaka's winding pathways carry thousands of years of history. Walk amongst the buildings whose facades are dressed in 19th century neoclassical design and architecture. Dine at one or several of its restaurants. And explore the ancient monuments, contemporary museums and traditional souvenir shops throughout.

    Its befitting that this monument the center of commercial and business life in ancient times would later give rise to the buzzing shopping district that surrounds it today. Of course, Monastiraki does not compare to the milieu of the ancient agora, but it still continues to inspire those who live, work and visit the area.
