Most graffiti is precarious with a necessarily short shelf-life. A lot of it is painted on derelict or condemned buildings or temporary breezeblock walls surrounding building sites

 

Some of the graffiti you'll see on these pages isn't there any more

Remember, I took these photos because I happened to be there. I didn't go there camera in hand because I'd heard of the graffiti.

You notice styles and names that crop up time and again. Pez in the Barcelona graffiti and el niño de las pinturas in Granada

Another thing I've learnt from my googling is that amongst graffiti artists and aficionados, two of the most highly thought-of cities in Spain are.... Barcelona and Granada

A happy coincidence? Or part of a plan by some higher authority?
