GRAFFITI AND OTHER URBAN ART IN ALICANTE

It seems that graffiti as a part of an urban art is characteristic to almost all cities of XXI century. Alicante is not an exception. It is fine if graffiti are incorporated into an existing city environment. Look at these photos and tell yourself if it’s the case:

Into children playgrounds. It can be seen that children is a part of society Alicante’s authorities care about. Children playgrounds can be frequently found in the city:

You can find pieces of embellishment everywhere. On the walls:

But most of all I was thrilled by this solution of dealing with recycling bins. Look, how nice are the trach cans in Alicante. And they are everywhere – all over the city:

And then I think = we, Latvians, have so many young and talented artists, why not to ask them to hide ugly places in our cities?
