[unconventional wisdom] Granada: Graffiti City


Granada is an amazing city, most famed for the incredible Alhambra – breathtaking Moorish architecture, design and art.

But what struck me as we walked around was that Granada has a language all of its own on the streets: graffiti.  People with things to say – especially social messages about capitalism, folk heroes and religious and political matters – do it through their street art.  No building is untouched – from the most basic daubs to pretty astonishing features over entire sides of buildings.

Like it or not, it’s communication….
