Once more urban art: Graffiti

Miami, the Graffiti Trendsetter!

I like graffiti. No, it’s much more visceral than that. I’m drawn into the images, they mesmerize with their three-dimensional, yet comicbookish graphic style. I’m riveted. On one hand I’m sorry to see graffiti go mainstream. On the other hand, it is most definitely an art form and as such deserves recognition.

Here in Atenas we’re pretty graffiti-poor, we have more traditional murals. But recently in San José, I passed by some graffiti riding in a car. Not the best condition to take photos, but there was no other option. Check out some of the resulting pictures in my smugmug link above.

Since we’ve had an absolutely abysmal week, that’s all for today. Hasta luego y Happy Weekend!
