Wordful Wednesday - Grafitti



When we were in Quito, Ecuador on the mission trip I noticed a lot of grafitti.  From my understanding, it's encouraged to paint areas that would otherwise look desolate.  


I was amazed at a lot of the talented work.  Most of it was very well done.  There was some that was obviously done to vandalize property but the majority was artistic and interesting to see.

I really like the 2nd one down. These are all really cool. I'd love to watch them create them.

I love to see street art. Glad it's encouraged. It sounds like a cheap way for them to spruce up the area.

Gorgeous! I wish I had a picture of the gas station near my house to share. One wall has been painted with animals, planets, an astronaut--basically I think the theme is to take better care of Earth, but anyway, it is amazing what people can do with cans of spray paint!
