Graffiterati captures slogan graffiti from around the world. From Buenos Aires, Hamburg to the suburbs of Melbourne, thr thoughts of graffiti authors have been captured and preserved. Their messages of peace, politics, humour, the environment and agitation highlight the common global themes and their desire to be heard.
The idea of capturing graffiterati comes from recording at point in time, the mood of global graffiti artists. It is a time capsule that can be traced back and used as a social indicator of a person, place or event. Graffiti is a temporary communication from the author due to the elements and indeed, local government efforts to clean it up. As such, the graffiti is only available for a limited time to be captured and preserved forever. This creates images which are unique and in turn creates the same effect as a photographic piece for your corporate foyer, living room, your band's CD cover or image to accompany your communication message.
