CYPRUS: Streetart Nicosia – Taht-el-Kale District – Graffiti and Urban Art Collection

The neighborhood Taht-el-Kalein in Nicosia is located in the inner core of the city around the historic Famagusta Gate. There are churches and mosques here, but otherwise it is a rather run-down area in terms of buildings and workshops, many of which have been abandoned and lost. Just as the buildings are only half used, so is the graffiti, which are rather bombed and short pieces, but super old ones are still existing. Nevertheless, the place is very interesting and shows a historicity of local crafts development and urban art. This strange border situation changed a lot and keeps it strange. Local artists like especially ASTRAKISTRIKES with her project “Mapping the Old City” try to bring more color and innovative ideas to those quarters.
