After his last mural at the end of last month, Greek artist Simek is back with a fresh and contrasting collaboration in the streets of Athens with another Greek artist, Donforty.

Although both artists enjoy painting at derelict places,  Simek and Donforty own two quite different styles. On the one hand we have Donforty’s work, characterised by drippings and improvisation, quickly painted pieces without sketches and  often inspired by the places and surfaces they are painted on. Simek’s work on the other hand, stems from modern & traditional architecture and is characterised by a geometric abstract style that incorporates the architecture and graphic elements surrounding his pieces. Together they create a perfect balance between organic and geometric shapes, between representation and abstraction.
