Athens Street Art  
by
9/9/14 Posted 9/9/14

In Greece, you can see the acronym A.C.A.B. written along with the graffiti dating from 2008, the beginning of the riots against the violent behaviour that resulted in the death of a teenager at the hands of a police officer. "All Cops Are Bastards" is a common hymn in the anarchist-friendly neighbourhood of Exarcheia in central Athens which, incidentally, is the last place you can expect to see any; it's a commonly held belief that Exarcheia is a "no-go" zone for police - and you really can't wond...

A drunken debate between a poet and a prose writer turned tragic last week when the poet knifed the prosateur to death.

The man faces up to 15 years in prison. This isn’t the first time philosophical debates... [more]

Like the kid who’s more interested in pebbles on the ground than animals at the zoo, I view life th... [more]

Urban Issues

12/13/11 Posted 12/13/11

Interacting with city surfaces through reflections and/or through ruffling smooth appearances to see what lies below the obvious is an ongoing interest.  My 'interaction' consist of  'scrambling', so to speak,  the confident lines of bricks, or street signs, or by interfering with the colours and textures of fragments from public wall paintings and graffiti.  Buildings reflected in pavement puddles therefore get entangled with inconsistent and erratic curves of organic matter like trees.  Plant an...
