Graffiti is without question, not something new since humans have started drawing on surfaces thousands of years ago. Nonetheless, graffiti in the form that is most commonly known in our days, arose through processes established possibly in Philadelphia around the 1960s reaching New York by the end of the decade. The 1970s were a decade of high acne for the art of graffiti and it was then when it became popularized and began to occupy a significant part of the public space, making its presence felt by the general population, who would then see subway windows and public walls covered in tags and paintings of bigger scale.   In any case, over the years street artists have managed to establish themselves as respected creators and some of them have even gained international fame, transforming graffiti from a fringe art, aiming sometimes to mark street gangs’ territory, into big business.
