Greek Painter Transforms Abandoned Buildings in Crete (photos)

A Greek painter has given new life to abandoned buildings in remote villages of Crete, Greece.
Voula Ladoukaki has taken upon the task of transforming buildings that are left in ruins in the prefecture of Heraklion.

In an interview with the Athens News Agency she says that she began her project in May, starting from the small village of Antiskari.
“At Antiskari there are many dilapidated houses which were spoling the image of the nearby beautiful beach,” Ladoukaki said.

Before and after

With the help of local volunteers she painted nine buildings before moving on to other nearby villages.

Ladoukaki says she always consults the property owners before she proceeds with the makeover.
However, as she points out, most buildings in the area have no owners as they have been abandoned for decades.
