In this amazing city, where people are encouraged to play, and gather, and create, and, well, live large- we have the most dazzling unauthorized public ‘Wall Art’ that I have ever seen. It is not painted-over, is not fussed about, and is not giving anyone a melt-down.
These urban taggers are not defiling private homes, or public transportation. Their designs turn up on abandoned buildings and otherwise boring sidewalls.
I have never seen an obscene scene (how’s that for really crappy writing?), a curse word, or a phallic symbol.
What I do see are bright colors, fantastical creatures, and some really great graphic art.
