NileGuide Expert tip:
Don't be shy if you happen to catch the artist at work. Tom is happy to tell you about what he's working on, or any of his thoughts in general for that matter.
You're sure to turn your head if you're walking down Sotiros Street and catch Tom's Art Garden, where Irishman, Tom McGrath, paints his political sentiments laced with comedic overtones in bright colors along the wall of a crumbling facade. Any number of other articles are likely to be presented including mannequins dressed as terrorists or presidents (or both, depending on what side you're on) and his heartfelt thoughts about God. The area was given to Tom, a political refugee of Northern Ireland, by the landowner, the Greek Orthodox Church.. He lives in an adjacent, equally derelict building and expresses warm wishes to visitors with his characteristic, toothless smile.
