Street Art in Havana.

Some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place.” Banksy

I’ve spent the better part of many holidays getting to know a city by walking around and admiring historic architecture found in castles and cathedrals or resting in a park filled with trees and fountains. I never once thought about becoming more intimate with the culture of a city by observing it through street art and graffiti. Whether it be a simple illustration that makes you smile, a political statement that challenges your beliefs or a work of art so amazing it takes your breath away, taking in street art is now a must for me whenever I travel.

I took this photo while I was in Havana about a year as I whizzed by on a carriage ride through the city. I love the fun theme of the art and thought it an interesting contrast to the crumbling dilapidated building in the background.
