Graffitii. ♥

Well even though I live in Saudi Arabia, where there is hardly any graffiti on walls, bridges, or any other area around town as far as I’ve ventured, you can still see a small amount of it around .. mostly its amateur stuff thats not even worth mentioning, but there is one wall that really is beautiful, & I used to see it every dayy.

Yehh this picture is invertedd .. since I couldn't find the original picture this will have to do. >_<

This one was right beside my classroom .. so I got to see this a hell lot more .. its got a lot of memories actually .. we used to take pictures here every year, we used to stand here waiting for the teachers to open up the Library [the door is right beside the picture] & this is the place where we all ended up studying for the IG’s when in school .. & it wasn’t just me and my class, nearly every middle school/high school student used to sit near this wall at times.  This was actually done by the 10th grade batch in 2005 .. which makes it even more special.

Anyway here are some other graffities from around the world that I liked,

Not all grafittii have to be complicated, some can be as simple as the skeletons below & can still reflect the natural graffiti charm.

Grafitti isn’t just something that came with the new age, it been around since Greek times, but became a sign of the youth from 196o’s .. even though its mainly based on hip hop, rock legend Led Zeppelin used graffiti based album covers as well ..
