An artist’s manifesto…

Sometimes it’s a call for self-love…

when are you going to notice you Ljubljana

…and sometimes it’s thoughts on loving somebody else.

I love mummy

Sometimes the artists are eager to create a portrait of the loved one…

Most of the graffiti are pictures of cute (even if somewhat creepy and often really distorted) animals, though.
