A new, large graffiti decorates on the wall of an apartment building in Metaxourgio, in Athens, impressing the passersby. The graffiti depicts a girl with her books created by street artist SimpleG, a fine arts student.

The mural is titled “So many books, so little time,” and is located on 2 Megalou Alexandrou St, in Metaxourgio. With this work SimpleG wanted to talk about people’s growing addiction to screens and the fact that they spend less time reading books and enjoying their magic.

The artist created this work during the Petit Paris d’Athènes 2019, where Athens was transformed into Paris for a few days and various events took place in several areas of the city and with the last stop being in Metaxourgio.
