Greeks excluded

My big, fat, hairy, NON-GREEK, Greek crisis street art.

The Athens School of Fine Arts (ASKT), organizes a GREEK-CRISIS Street art... thing... from which Greek artivists are of course excluded.

No one invited us, and I wouldn't even bother to comment, however i feel compelled to do so after reading a School of Fine Arts comment to newspaper TO BHMA, which stated that Greeks were excluded due to the "dubious artistic value" of Greek street art.

ASKT's need to control and dictate "imported culture" to its "inferior greek citizens", once again shows why it never leads and always follows... and it doesn't come as a surprise.

A sorrofull salute to fellow foreign street artist that are being used as a free speech and polyphony alibi.

TRANSLATION: "The initiative also aims to highlight the differencebetween street artists who perform social criticism on walls and buildings with works that are branded and that are instantly recognizable for their personal character, as opposed to the anarchy of anonymous complaints with graffiti, which most often pollute public spaces with personal desires with dubious to none artistic value".

Mapet, anti-nazi seagull

Mapet's anti-nazi seagull, that featured on stickers and the "Wake Up Call" greek politic street art documentary by Kostas Kallergis, on the YRE anti-nazi camping poster.
