Athens graffiti goes vitral on internet (photo)

“Knowledge Speaks-Wisdom Listens” by famous WD

A dilapidated, abandoned building in the dreary streets on the corner of 52 Konstantinou Paleologou, and Samou St. in Athens, Attica presented the perfect canvas for a street artist to express his creativity. The graffiti, inspired by Jimmy Hendrix’s “Knowledge Speaks-Wisdom Listens”, was created by famous street artist “WD” in the framework of the Athens Municipality’s “The Little Paris of Athens” festival and has drawn the admiration of the internet community and Reddit. The artist posted on his Facebook page: “Knowledge speaks – Wisdom listens” Athens 2016 during Petit Paris d’ Athènes – το μικρό Παρίσι των Αθηνών fest. Owl symbolizes wisdom and at the same time is a symbol of the goddess Athena, the one that gave her name to the city of Athens. From the other hand owl as bird, is famous for its exceptionally good far vision, particularly in low light. Nowadays Greece, and not only, is experiencing a really dark phase and I think is time for us to recall this creature’s wisdom.”
