Alexandros Vasmoulakis: the brightest buckle in the graffiti belt

1_11_2

This summer I took a train from London to Istanbul and back again. As you cross the alps, from Austria to Slovenia say, you notice how much graffiti is painted on the walls of the big cities. It’s almost as if you hit the graffiti belt somewhere south of Graz.

Most of it is despoilingly ugly, especially in Athens where the streets around many of the ancient monuments have been ruined with the most moronic of daubings. But then again there’s also the delightful work of Alexandros Vasmoulakis whose delicate, fantastic murals enliven the city marvelously.
