I absolutely LOVE street art. Thankfully (well, depending on who you ask), Thessaloniki has a LOT of graffiti. This isn’t always a good thing, as sometimes people run out of walls and take to using statues:
But to me, the street art is what gives Thessaloniki so much of its charm. I’ve always had a soft spot for well-done graffiti. Here are some of the pieces I managed to remember to photograph:
This last one is a commissioned piece in downtown Thessaloniki done by two traveling street artists. It’s probably one of the most popular murals in the city and definitely my favorite.
As a bonus, have some Amsterdam street art (expect a full Amsterdam blog post soon!). There wasn’t much graffiti in the city, but we did stumble upon a street full of it when we were exploring downtown.
I’ve been making a more concentrated effort to photograph my surroundings. I haven’t been doing much as far as traveling goes, but I’ve realized that there’s so much going on in Thessaloniki that I need to take the time to appreciate. I’m not about to waste my last three months here (cue major tears) by not taking in all it has to offer.
