Sweet Paradise seen

I saw these three posters on street art covered walls in Athens.
They are both part of an award winning series by Brazilian photographer Fabricio Brambatti.

These two people stand side by side on a wall part way up the hill to the Acropolis. 

a black and white paste up of woman that has been painted over with many colours except for the head, hands and feet (wearing old fashioned shoes), on a wall in Athens,

I don’t know which artist is responsible for the black and white (pasteup?) at the bottom but the details in their work are wonderful even if a lot has been painted over (or is that what they looked like originally?).  I like the texture of the stockings as well as the mix up in the gender – hands too big for her, shoes not right for him.
