I thought it would be interesting for Spanish learners to look at some graffiti tags. More specifically these are Argentine graffiti tags from my neighbourhood in La Plata, Buenos Aires. These photos focus on the literal message of the graffiti not the artistry. Those who have visited Buenos Aires have probably noticed the huge graffiti, or street art, scene in the city. Not only can you find great artistic pieces, but you will see a lot of tags and messages. Some of the messages are political and social, others are about football or just straight-up text like messages: “Feliz cumpleaños” or “Te amo!” They are often pretty ugly and I would be pissed if someone tagged my house. There is no shortage of graffiti in Buenos Aires so if people like these, I will post more.

Anyway enjoy!
