Graffiti as Art

Keeping in theme, a post about real graffiti... these pieces are located in Argentina and Brazil, respectively. Graffiti here is more about art than damage, and often political in nature, and if nothing else, colorful and quite striking against the south american city scape; an intermingling of modern buildings and emerald jungles.

My photo
Born and raised under the Los Angeles sun and smog. At sixteen spent some time in LA County Juvenile Detention Center, although never really learned her lesson. Moved to Boston for the classic college experience. Spray painted graffiti in the Paris Metro during six month stay in the Marais. Survived an ultra fabulous and frightening internship at Vogue Magazine while living at a nunnery in Hell's Kitchen. Lived a year in Seoul, a city which can only be compared to a Disneyland theme park. Written four hundred sixty-four words of an undisclosed masterpiece novel. Currently pondering her next adventure and also the meaning of her memoirs from an artist's loft in dirty Brooklyn.
