    1. No problem to find wild graffiti even at remote locations and lost places in forbidden zones where only few people and insiders get the possibility to see and/or admire it. But I think it is also not bad when housing companies or schools decide to bring a little bit of color with murals to cities or villages. And with the right concept like here this can enrich society, life and culture substantially. So thanks for your comment.
