Graffiti of Mexico

The walls and surfaces of Mexico (as they are in the U.S.) are covered in graffiti of all sorts. Something unique that i noticed, especially in Oaxaca, with the recent (2006) uprising, was the proliferation of politically driven messages and art. It seemed to be more about the message rather than the expression. A message of frustration and desperation. Although some placement of the graffiti was disappointing (on national monuments), much of it was very well done and creative. Keeping an eye out for the alternative form of expression, i captured the scrawling in several different Mexican locals.

Here are a couple more Mexico photos for you.

Bravo! Love it. You could add that graffiti-ed agave plant from San Felipe, too! xxx
