Often they are expressions of undying love or support for some cause or political party.
Recently we had our first attack, someone trying to publicize their love for someone. Not really sure because the paint they used blended a bit with the concrete wall. But since it was ugly we wanted to fight back. We decided to cover the graffiti with a mural and enlisted the help of our friend Sheila Jennion a New Zealand artist living here in Tarija.
Probably it is wrong to say we “enlisted her help” as she basically did all. We just told her what we wanted, bought the paint and a week later there it was.
