More Stencil Graffiti: Streets of Mendoza and beyond

In Minneapolis we often equate graffiti with tagging, as this is the most prominent form of street painting.  Of course, we have excellent examples of graffiti wall art, such as on the Midtown Greenway in Seward neighborhood, or the walls of Intermedia Arts at LynLake. However, we don’t have much ‘stencil graffiti.’  Ever since seeing my first stencil graffiti in Valparaiso, Chile, I have been taken by the power of these often simple but provocative images.  Mendoza is no match in comparison to major cities, such as Buenos Aires and Santiago, however, here I present you with the images I have found around the city.  If you like these then check out the links to see very creative images from Buenos Aires and Rosario, Argentina:  CAM Buenos Aires and Cabaio.
