HAVANA TIMES — Graffiti is part of the urban environment of all the world’s major (and not-so-major) cities. While some forms of graffiti are veritable works of art, others undermine the city’s aesthetic beauty and norms.
In many contexts, graffiti art is one of the most notable forms of expression of society’s underprivileged sectors, sectors which, for obvious reasons, lack the material resources to reach art galleries and other exhibition spaces.
Graffiti art deals with a wide range of subjects, from politics to sports. Most graffiti artists are self-taught, learning their trade through daily practice.
