My voice will be spray painted across your bedroom walls
(short film by Blu: an ambiguous animation painted on public walls.
Made in Buenos Aires and in Baden.)
So recently I have been really interested in graffiti art. Hence the video above. When I was at school we had a graffiti artist come and make free t shirts for us, and we were able to make our own as well. It was a lot of fun, and a really cool way to express yourself. I always love seeing graffiti art on the streets, I think it really adds character. In America graffiti is looked down upon almost all over the country, that you never really see any great graffiti just mostly gang tags. Of coarse since graffiti is considered vandalism. Though now more graffiti artists are hired to do graffiti in certain areas of cities and not just anywhere. Around the world graffiti is widely accepted and encouraged. I remember when I was in Portugal when I was younger the graffiti was so cool and it was all over the city. I found some really cool graffiti and known graffiti artist work that I posted below. I wish I could do this, the creativity that's involved is amazing and very clever.
