Through a 4-hour private tour led by a real street artist, you will learn the history & origins of this underground global phenomenon and dig dipper into the “secret codes” of street artists as you enjoy an alternative tour in Athens center. You will understand the different styles, techniques & terminology: From stencils, paste-ups, throw-ups & bombings to tags, pieces, murals, installations and wild-style graffiti! Together you will wonder around small streets of up and coming neighborhoods in Athens like Metaxourgeio and discuss about the reasons why street art flourished in its walls!

You are going to focus on the social and political aspects of Greek street art scene. What political statements are the artists making and why? How the economic crisis urged people to express themselves on the streets?
