Recently I described my observations on Belo Horizonte’s graffiti scene. I saved two photos for later because there is another sub-genre of graffiti that doesn’t fit into the general definitions I described in my first post. Political graffiti is a category of its own, and is often done for different reasons than why someone would tag or create an artistic graffiti mural.
I didn’t see much political graffiti in most sections of Belo Horizonte that I visited. However, in the favela next to the neighborhood where I was staying–Estrela d’Alva–these two graffiti stencils were everywhere.
