IMG_0276The flowers on your balcony are not gonna save Imitos..

Imitos ..one of the mountains surrounding Athens..a city with such natural limits of expansion but no profit limit as far as building is concerned ..so since the city expansion has over exceeded any limit after 60 years of non stop building and violating Athenian nature..the solution to our problem given to us from our wise minister of environment was .. to expand to the other side of  Imitos by making auto routes on the mountain..

Against these plans, protest comes only from a few citizen groups of the suburbs around the mountain..groups that suggest self and local organisation and deny representative democracy..

INFO:during a protest demonstration against the building of auto routes on Imitos mountain called by the local assembly of Agia Paraskeui I noticed the people watching us from their balconies..the irony that the balconies where full of flowers on a block of flats on the root of the mountain which is in great danger combined with the fact that they didn’t bother to participate in the protest gave me the inspiration to spray this slogan..

PS.less than a week later there was a fire on Imitos..

IMG_0146φυλακισμένος καταναλωτής

καταναλωτής:από τους πιο εξευτελιστικούς όρους που έχει χρησιμοποιηθεί για να κατηγοριοποιήσει ανθρώπους είτε ως άτομα είτε ως ομάδες..δυστυχώς δεν είναι μόνο ένας όρος αλλά μια πραγματικότητα..και είναι εξευτελιστική..ευτυχώς για τον καπιταλισμό ο σύγχρονος άνθρωπος δεν δείχνει σημάδια αξιοπρέπειας..

ινφο:κοπιαρισμένο από τ-σερτ..κόπηκε και βάφτηκε σε ένα στενσιλworkshop στο πάρκο στα εξάρχια από τον κόσμο που συμμετείχε/στην κατάληψη πραποπούλου/η φωτο είναι από το ΤΕΙ Αθηνών κατά τη διάρκεια ενος φεστιβάλ ενάντια στην εμμονή του πρύτανη για καθαρούς τοίχους..μάλλον δεν κράτησε πάνω από μια μέρα

consumer prisoner

consumer:the most humiliating term used to categorize people..either as individuals or as groups..unfortunately it’s not just a term..it’s a reality..and it’s humiliating too..thank god for capitalism human kind shows no dignity..

info:copied from a t-shirt I saw abroad..Little park exarhia/prapopoulo squat halandri/technological  university of Athens?(they have a very strict anti-graffiti policy ,don’t think it’ll last)

Εικόνα002police is everywhere..but love makes us invisible..

Lately you can see police force all around, defending the “democracy” state..I admit I’m scared sometimes..I’ve even reduced my stencil nights out after a police confrontation I had in the center of Athens..

But there are some other times that I’m not afraid of anything..there is this great feeling of freedom,solidarity,friendship or even romance that conquers any fear and makes me feel invisible by any high tech law enforcement measure..

If I had  to summarize this feeling in one word this could be “love”..

Info:Actually it’s not my quote ..I first saw it on a wall in Thessaloniki and adopted it..this one in fine arts school Athens..the playmobil is my spokesman..moves around the city and sprays my messages..many thanks to papias(political zoo stencil) for the  photoshop work on minimapet..
