Monkey Says I love Istanbul

I saw those one near the Tepebaşı district, right behind the Istiklal Near Taksim. On the first one you can see there's a fly near the lock. On the last one you can see the "Alexis" one. The ones in Kallavi street (3rd photo)have been erased.

Door Two : Fix One

This is the other door from the parking lot entrance in Tepebaşı near Taksim. You still can see the BSK's and the Kont's but here there are more Fix One apparently.

Kont / BSK - Number 01

Here is a series of 11 stencils done probably by the same guy(s). You can see them in Tepebaşı near Taksim on the Kasımpaşa side of the road at the exit of the Tepebaşı Parking Lot.
Most of them are signed Kont or BSK or Fix. I don't know what it stands for but if you have any infos on those ones, it would be cool. I'll post the general view at the end of the series.

Mayor of Istanbul

This is a portrait of the actual mayor of Istanbul since 2004, Kadir Topbaş. He's from the AKP (Justice and Development Party). You have to know the symbol of the AKP (which is a light bulb) to understand the stencil. They replaced the light bulb with his head and let the rays of light around.
Those stencil where found in Cihangir respectively in Başkurt Street, in Somuncu Street and in Güneşli Street near Susam Street.

I already posted about this one more than a year ago and instead of updating the post itself I decided to create a new one since it has grow up so much. It's everywhere, in all the Taksim, Cihangir, Maçka, Tophane area. I couldn't put all of them in here but you get the idea.
