Going back about 15 years, D! is a true veteran of the Athens graffiti and street art scene. Over the years he has arrived at a distinct aesthetic and typographic vision that stands out quite clearly from the chaotic walls of the city. Here’s some more on his artistic evolution and intentions, his recent “Their True ID” project and a very interesting account of the contemporary political situation in Greece.
