Graffiti Arist Mad Zoo Fall at Dakar Festigraff

Dakar Graffiti Festival “Festigraff,” April, 2013

Please visit my new web page on Dakar’s extraordinary graffiti festival (link on sidebar menu).  This fourth annual Festigraff, shows that the passionately devoted “graffeurs” have richly deserved the hard-won  reputation of Dakar’s unique street art scene as  equal to that of New York or Paris for its creative originality and social activism.  Unlike graffiti artists in other countries, they are welcomed in Dakar.  They see themselves and others see them as a civic movement actively cleaning up and beautifing the disintegrating environment of their beloved Dakar.  Their mission is to educate and motivate their fellow Dakarois to do the same.
