Graffiti Limbo offers unique insight into what may be the ultimate expression of public art. Graffiti is a vibrant combination of art and urban dissent that emerged from the streets and inspired artists such as Keith Haring and Jean Michel Basquiat. It is one of the few art forms where artists face arrest and even death as they create their art. For some, however, it is a form of vandalism that causes millions of dollars in property damage and is used by gangs to mark turf in inner cities.
