Mural & Graffiti Traditions

Sometime between 15,000 and 10,000 B.C., visual communication of ideas and personal artistic expression began to show up on cave walls in  Spain and France.

 “Graffiti comforts the disturbed and disturbs the comfortable.” Unknown

 The mural tradition continues today throughout the world.

Public message billboards like those below have been around since Pompeii where almost every wall had a message calling citizens to action or expressing public views.
