As the USA is celebrating the anniversary of it’s declared independence from Great Britain today we bring you a few shots of new Street Art from that city widely held as the birthplace of democracy around 508 BCE, Athens. They have just completed their first Street Art festival ever, which organizers say is a non profit attempt to promote social conscience and action through art, and French artist FKDL was a part of it. Here are a few photos from the streets of Athens for BSA readers.
The Athens festival included these participating artists:
Fred Le Chevalier (F), Milo Art (F), Bastek (F), Icks (It), Uno (It), Kashink (F), Losotros X Mj Tom (GR), Btoy (SP), Gregos (F), Kouka (FR), Rabea Senftenberg (Berlin), Thom Thom (FR), Franck Duval (FR). Special thanks to Franck Duval FKDL for these images
