Jirafiti Project – MY Culture MY Expression!


The exhibition will be a creation of urban arts using the medium of graffiti to create positive reflections of youth expression; through a 10 week, 20 workshops Selena has shown the youth the 'real' urban art culture (graffiti, hip hop, break dancing etc) and all the tenants that come with being a responsible urban 'graffiti' artist culminating into creation of a 20 foot mural for the benefit of the community associations and schools.
