Graffiti Art Stretches Across America's Ghettos...

              

       

     

Graffiti Art is really an expression of pride among many of the gang-bangers and taggers. In the world of art this form of self expression tells a story. I've seen this art form evolve from the days I lived in the barrios (50's & early 60s), until the present, and it has become considerably richer in form and detail. I'm often amazed how talented these ghetto artists really are. Many of them go on to be professional tattoo artists and their style is much sought after by tattoo enthusiasts. It's easy to see why, as the free forms flow across the walls of barrios and alleys from East LA to Bangor, Maine.
