Spain #115

By handlerstudio  
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In the two big cities we were in (less so in Sevilla), any plank surface seemed to be a challenge for "graffiti writers) to paint on and put their marks. Of course, they needed to be documented...and who better to do it? Some were fairly ordinary, and others quite creative, showing real talent. Interestingly, the painter, Jean Michel Basquiat, who burned very brightly in New York before his early death in his late 20s (like rock and roll stars) started as a graffiti writer...and the huge mural project in Philadelphia, where I live, started and still run by Jane Golden, came out of an anti-graffiti project....they enlisted the graffiti writers....and many more artists...now we have over 3000 murals here.
