A ''GRAFFaki'' walk :)

Chrysafaki has constantly indicated a strong love for urban culture and street art. Therefore, you can find attached some snap shots that I created while walking around in the streets, while chasing after the air of the city, while witnessing the grandeur of athenian street art. I love illustrations, I love colors, I love design, I love painting and mixing colors as well as sounds :) Chrysafaki illustrates its indicative and representative ''GRAFFaki'' pics below. GRAFFaki < GRAFFITI + Faki... my nickname!N*joy...

Michael Jackson's graffiti on a store rolling wall at Ifaistou Street, Monastiraki area

''ino'' 's teargas Psirri area. Linkin Park (and not only) would love that graffiti!

Wonderful GRAFFITI area at the end of Ermou St., opposite the Technopolis spot at Gazi! So many memories, so many pics there...the graffities across Piraeus Ave. are awesome as well!

Well, it's not the real BANKSY , but my beloved Nouvelle Vague Bar at Kolonaki, Skoufa st., has a strong taste for deco...apart from the unique cocktails ;) Delicious cocktails, expressive walls!

Flying over GREECE...

Despite the harsh times we have been through, we still LOVE GREECE. After viewing the attached video I came across on youtube, you can realise that as Greeks we are fully equipped by nature so as to cope with difficulties and keep on. ''Don't let go - never give up in such a wonderful life."
n*joy GREECE from hign above...

1987 Casio G-Shock by Nigel Sylvester, BMX Pro.

''1987" by Casio G-Shock, is an urban retro-style video shot on the streets of New York City, the home of BMX icon Nigel Sylvester. The video, titled 1987 the year Nigel was born, celebrates a collaborative timepiece between Casio G-Shock and Nigel. As an adult, Nigel looks back on his year of birth as a time of great creative freedom and experimentation. The film was created to capture that spirit.

The cinematography takes reference from classic arcade games. The sound design draws spirit from the associated 16 bit soundtracks that emanated from the computers of that time. The graphic approach pays homage to Casio. Nigel demonstrates the importance of timing while performing tricks wearing the G-Shock GD100NS-7. 

i love the G-SHOCKs :) n*joy the videos
