Photo: Daze in Ecuador – Part 4
Legendary graffiti writer, and 12ozProphet blogger, Daze has been in Quito, Ecuador for a few weeks now after being awarded a SMART power grant from the Bronx Museum. He has been providing mural workshops for children from four schools in Quito and has provided some great reports for 12ozProphet about his movements there. His time in Ecuador is now coming to an end and has written this report earlier today on his 12ozProphet Blog.
“So i’m about wrapping up my time here in Quito. I found the city here to be pretty amazing an i’m glad to say that working with the schools here was a great experience. I’d say the climate for graff/street art is a bit mixed. I’d say the majority really love seeing murals done and pieces of all kinds. On the other hand there are those who are misinformed about the culture and don’t really get it. Most of those people are politicians and those that hang on their every word. They don’t understand it and because they don’t understand it they hate it. Nevertheless I had a great time here and this won’t be my last visit. I have plans to do more here.
