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!

    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.
