Title: Story on the Wall: Graffiti as a Form of Communication

Abstract:Each piece of graffiti has a story behind it. While studying abroad in Buenos Aires, I noticed how different the graffiti there is compared to that of the United States. In my presentation I will show how graffiti is used as a form of communication, both by anonymous and identified artists. To do this, I will define what graffiti is, show several pictures of graffiti in Buenos Aires, and discuss the meanings behind them.
