Graffiti inside out

A new gallery installation called On The Blocks at Vamiali's Gallery in Athens is taking street art inside.
In a bid to translate the vitality and urgency of street art, the exhibition is turning the gallery outside-in and using construction material to act as a backdrop for the street artists to demonstrate their work.
The exhibition aims to shun the common notion of graffiti as vandalism. Graffiti artists APSET, BLAQK, BOOHAHA, MINTONE and RTMone participate in a constantly evolving group installation that complements their individual work. Those visiting the installation are free to walk the 'streets' taking in all the intensity of the new art that will never be seen outside.
On the Blocks runs till March 24 at the Vamiali's Gallery, 1 Samou St, Karaiskaki Square, Metaxourgio, Athens. For more information visit www.vamiali.net
