[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Graffiti is writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place. Graffiti ranges from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and it has existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire.

In street art, graffiti is often used by artists as a form of self-expression. It makes common words and names that we wouldn’t usually care about stand out, and brings to life even the dullest corners of the street. Graffiti art definitely is the most forgivable form of vandalism, at least from an aesthetic standpoint.

The graffiti in Athens is sometimes dark and sends a strong message of the current situation in the city. One difference between a "normal" artist and a street "writer" is that a normal artist may work on a piece for weeks in the secure comfort of the studio. A street writer averages 5 minutes or less on a piece with the threat of being caught at any moment and going to jail, or get run over by a train. This is the buzz for the street "writers"...

Hello Tsilla, a very brightly coloured example of graffiti.
An interesting note too.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi,this certainly is a vibrant and dynamic shot for the theme.All the best Otto.

Ugh! Oscar Goodman, the former mayor of Las Vegas, once proposed cutting off the thumb of those graffiti artist or taggers. Most of those graffiti are ugly. But you did a wonderful job capturing these. Good details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Tsilla,
Beautiful colorful graffiti on this train.
Sometimes these painting are very interesting.
They do a mess on walls but, in some way they carry a message.
Well done,

Francis xavier
