The first thing that hit me when I came here was the lavish amount of graffiti on the walls of the houses. Not just a bit of dabbling here and there but often complete graffiti painted houses. Imaginative and accomplished street art, they never ceased to inspire me.
Talking one day to a graffiti artist, steeped as I am in the rules and regulations of Swedish bureaucracy, I asked him if it was allowed to paint a whole house as he was doing now? He just laughed and replied, ”This is Argentina. We do what we like here!”
This is the end result. Quite impressive, isn’t it?
Enjoy this small selection of wonderful street art in Palermo!
