Needless to say it’s a bit quieter now and once you get away from the centre of town you discover that it is home to many talented writers and urban artists. I have already documented some of the great artwork that I found in one of the local subways and this is the remainder of the graffiti photographs from my visit (more paste ups and bits and bobs to come :)).
