Who Is Hopare?

Alexandre Monteiro aka Hopare is a French street artist based in Paris.
He allegedly discovered street art when he was around 12 years old while coming across an old factory covered with graffiti.
Hopare’s creations are all designed out of a perfect geometry, in a graphic abstract style.
His work often features faces, he uses bright colors and variations of straight lines.

Lefkada & Athens

Lefkada is a beautiful island with amazing beaches and delicious food!

Athens are full of Street Art, however, the majority of those paintings are simple Graffiti tags. I do not appreciate tagging, since it is basically leaving a signature on random places, which I cannot consider an artistic expression.
