Abstract Graffiti in Expressionism Style

Abstract Graffiti in the Barracas Neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina
I found this graffiti in the Barracas neighborhood in Buenos Aires. It's very close to the Parque Lezama in San Telmo. I'm not sure what the street artist was going to express here, but the style of the graffiti feels like an experimental approach of crossing styles such as Cubism and Comic.
Do you like abstract art?

I like abstract art in places where it's been invited. No idea about the local circumstances in this case. In my book vandalism is never welcome, regardless of what kind of talent the perpetrator believes he has.

Good shot, anyhow.

I do enjoy Abstract Art.
Both by Trying to find by myself what's in the painting or when the artists explain what they wanted to show

Abstract art makes less of an impact on me than it has in the past. Although Mark Rothko, in my opinion, remains very strong.

The graffiti that you photographed here I like however. Its more than just a kid goofing off with spray paint.

My grandson just returned from Buenos Aires. He said street graffiti is not only accepted but encouraged in this area. Some companies even pay the graffiti artists to paint their buildings with graffiti such as this. He was very impressed with it, said most of it was beautiful.
