Last month I posed a question about graffiti in Barcelona. Why did it seem that the taggers were avoiding tagging the fabric of buildings. Was this a communal understanding or something else?
Roger Tallada has come up with an answer. He says it’s because of an intense long term cleaning policy by the city council and points us to a before and after film on youtube. Thanks Roger. It still leaves me wondering if the cleaning policy has changed the behaviour of taggers (street artists) on a more permanent basis or whether the cleaning squads simply swoop on anything that appears?
