The city is no longer the politico-industrial zone that it was in the nineteenth century, it is the zone of signs, the media and the code. (Jean Baudrillard)

During my adolescence I became obsessed with postmodern graffiti. The colored letters can last for years or dissapear within days, so I immediately felt the need to document every piece I could find and, in my view, had at least some artistic value.

In a modern state, where everything is monitored and controlled, graffiti interrupts the routine of everyday life and the commercialised system of signs and codes.
