Hidden Doorway

Posted on Sep 10, 2008 | 0 comments

I know a lot of people are often surprised and/or shocked by the amount of graffiti they see in Europe. I, for one, am kind of immune to it at this point. While in the US graffiti often has a negative connotation, here it can be used to create fantastic art pieces. I’ll admit that Rome isn’t as creative in its graffiti use (you’ll see a lot of “Tiziana ti amo” or “Lazio merda”), but you will find some spectacular street art in Valencia, for example. While this graffiti wasn’t exactly intended as a unified piece, I find all the different tags come together to make something quite beautiful, especially in the dark of night. This particular doorway is hidden right around the corner from Campo de’ Fiori, across from the enoteca L’Angolo Divino.
