Mexico Street Art

This city is, sad to say, plagued with graffiti. It’s everywhere – on houses, shops, walls, buses. Anywhere with room enough to take a few letters of spray paint. The vast majority of it is ugly, and some is apparantly pretty sinister. Word has it that criminals use to graffiti to mark homes that are empty as a possible target for robbery. Or just to let others know not to bother – they’ve just robbed it themselves. But now and again I come across something artistsic. The photo below is of a building just 2 minutes round the corner. I imagine they probably got permission to do it, as it’s not something that could be done quickly. Whatever, it’s pretty cool.
