Coming across graffiti in our day-to-day life is pretty common. We see it on the metro, on big billboards, and even on trains. However, how often do you actually stop to take a moment and appreciate it? You can learn a lot about a city’s culture and history based on its graffiti. Just like other forms of art, graffiti is commonly used as a way to express oneself and sometimes as a way to convey political messages that aim to subvert the status quo. Due to the art’s cultural significance, graffiti tours are gaining popularity. Almost every city you go to offers a tour of a city or neighborhood’s intricate underground scene.
