Special about your Graffiti-scene?
I can say Graffiti in Manila is  still is its early years, but yet very thankful to other writers and artists that keep the scene alive. There are cities that are very strict when it comes to Graffiti, some are just chill, laid back. But the hard thing to deal in each city are the “barangays” (Barrios or hood).
