Seen On The Streets Of Athens Greece

Photo: George Nikolakopoulos
More protest art from the streets of my home town, Athens, Greece... 

 "I aim at questioning the maturity of European union which I depict as a young girl trying to reach between stars (the EU flag contains 12 stars) a starfish ( criticizing the fact that one by one the weakest countries starting from Greece are facing devastating impact due to the credit crisis- thus from the sky are ending in the bottom of the sea)."...

Manolis Anastasakos in collaboration with Kretsis Crew: "This is a project that will be complete with 2 more murals in Athens.

This mural is called: "He, is praying for us"
It's 600 m²
The theme is from
Albrecht Durer - 1508 (praying hands)
The idea was to change the prey of a man into a prey of a god.

In our confused country with all the social-economical-political issues, we can only turn for help to god. The disability of the politicians to solve problems, or to be fair, have create a <> system that destroys our values and of course art. This artwork is a sarcastic statement that god is the only solution left for us
