Anti-religious Street Art, Mytilene

Street art has the freedom of expressing what the ‘artist’ wishes to convey. However, despite it being a beautiful reality, in the dullness of a modern city, we identify that many of its messages can be rude, anti-religious, anti-political, anarchist etc. Below we find two anti-religious graffiti, located, ironically but deliberately, near the largest Orthodox Church in Mytilene, St Therapon. The first wishes to express the ‘stupidity’ of the existence of God: ‘believing in God is like believing in Superman’ whilst the second one is both anti-religious and against the government, claiming: ‘God wants you to be a sheep and the government a slave.’
