7UP(stairs).... Alternative Istanbul

 It stopped me dead in my tracks! A wonderful interpretation of Olive Oil (Popeye's girlfriend) as a Geisha... Istanbul, once you uncover those blue and white tiles, has so much more to offer in terms of an alternative scene. In other words be on the lookout for an ArcheWALLogy book! :)

And by the way 7UP is one of the most prolific and talented graffiti artists in Istanbul. His work, once you are off the tourist tracks is simply mesmerising. And above are photos of yours truly next to two 7UP(stairs) graffiti works - once in Amsterdam and one in Istanbul.
PS: The Olive oil photo is super high resolution, feel free to download it to your collection if you are a graffiti hunter.
