Postcard from Valencia, Spain: Don’t block the driveway

Guessing the purpose of street art applied to many garage doors in Valencia is two-fold: to alert drivers seeking parking spaces in a competitive environment not to block the driveways and to dissuade both graffiti artists and taggers from assuming the metal louvered doors are blank canvases awaiting their touch.

The same type of louvered doors lowered over shop or business entrances often combine advertising in the colorful artistic expressions characterizing numerous streets.

    Wonderful and witty art! Much better than the gross and rude announcements in Arteaga Street!
