    An Athenian “neo-muralist” is blending Greek #mythology and Byzantine iconography with #graffiti and street art to depict how the #coronavirus has forced people the world over to put down roots. From Bangkok to Rabat and Zurich, Fikos has painted the walls of many cities, but he’s now adding a splash of colour to the sun-beaten facades of the Cypriot capital #Nicosia.
