Postcard from Coimbra, Portugal: Street Art Series Continues

The camera refuses to remain pocketed in the face of this form of unlicensed artistic (sometimes) expression.

With 20,000 students winding their way to and from classes at the University of Coimbra, walls are mercilessly targeted. Perhaps those black student cloaks too conveniently camouflage cans of spray paint.

Most of the results are scrawled immature sexual innuendos or screaming political manifestos, surely unwelcome to those who live behind the targeted walls. Few we encountered evidenced much underlying talent.
