The C*-algebras of continuous functions on quantum spheres, quantum real projective spaces, and quantum complex projective spaces are realized as Cuntz-Krieger algebras corresponding to suitable directed graphs. Structural results about these quantum spaces, especially about their ideals and K-theory, are then derived from the general theory of graph algebras. It is shown that the quantum even and odd dimensional spheres are produced by repeated application of a quantum double suspension to two points and the circle, respectively.
