Graffiti Around the World

Traveling around the world I enjoy walking around exploring the neighborhoods of my temporary location – graffiti always catches my eye. In Buenos Aires I stayed in the Palermo Soho neighborhood and walked throughout the neighborhood – there was plenty of creative graffiti in the area.

In the historic Casco Viejo neighborhood of Panama there was construction everywhere so it was a nice surprise to come across a little gallery of graffiti along one of the streets.

    You found some nice looking graffiti to photograph. I was so surprised to see so much ugly graffiti in Milan. I guess being born in East Los Angeles I just assumed the U.S. was the mecca for these artists and that it hadn’t gone viral. I can be a bit naive at times…

    • Banksy is probably the most well known graffiti artist in the world and he is from the UK. Graffiti lives all around the world – I hope to see some in Barcelona soon!

  2. Amazing art work throughout the world.
    Love the Great Wall Graffiti.

  3. That is some GREAT graffiti.

    That is some cool street art!!

    We used to live in a place where the view from our bedroom window was of a public wall that people were allowed to graffiti on. It was amazing!!

    • That would be great, I would love that! An ever changing canvas right outside your window. When I was in art school many years ago we had a ‘graffiti stairwell’ that was a constantly reworked canvas.
