Graffiti in Costa Rica’s Capital City – San Jose

Graffiti in Costa Rica – A Walk through San Jose

One thing that I don’t see often out in the country where I live is graffiti. It’s not that it’s not there it’s just so few and far between that I may hardly notice. We took a walk through San Jose, the capital city and found these gems. Each seemed to have a different artist and there was no notice of this being a project, just artistic expressions. If there was any congruence to the palettes I would have guessed someone paid to have these done but one piece of art was separated by someone’s tag and then a patch of missing paint led to another great work of art.

Backboard any of these and sell them at the local market is my advice.
