i was surprised at the amount and quality of graffiti all over puerto rico. there were a lot of abandoned and hollowed out buildings that provided plenty of space. i especially liked this stencil. here are a few more that caught my eye

most of these are from Luquillo. specifically, around the school that was destroyed in hurricane George. the stencil, however, is from San Juan. what area are you from?

=] I’m from the south…was born in Ponce, raised in Coamo, but have family all over the island. I live in Boston now but my parents and a lot of family are still on the island. I LOVE luquillo. Have you been to the southern part of PR?

hi,
I’m intrested in using this photo (pig/police) for a publication on Graffiti in Old San Juan. I’d be giving you cred, of course. Let me know if it’s ok. thanx MT
