Graffiti and Art

If there is one overwhelming scourge that plagues Mexico City, it is graffiti. It is everywhere. Anything that can be painted on is painted on, and usually it is artless crap – a name or tag or whatever they call it. Bring back the stocks for the swines! But having said that, some graffiti really can give a dull wall some life. If it’s applied by someone who is trying to create as opposed to someone who is effectively cocking his leg to mark his territory.

I dare say that the first photo I linked to was a paid job, but there are other examples which aren’t – but I don’t have photos for them! But how about the graffiti in the photo below? How cool is that? I’m assuming a lick of paint isn’t going to do the snail any harm. Maybe it will even scare off a few predators! Original photos are here.
