Aristotle's Molotov Cocktail
Gasp at Aristotle wielding a petrol bomb in a dramatic piece of wall-art from Exarchia, Athens’ most bohemian and left-wing political quarter. Aristotle does say in Politics that poverty engenders civil conflict and crime. The political wall-artists of Athens often subvert classical Greek art and images to reinforce political statements. The painting appeared in 2015 at the height of Greece’s sovereign debt crisis and the punitive measures applied to its economy by the European Union.
