40° Urban Art Festival 2019 – 3rd day of the jump

For me this 3rd day of 40° Festival was a day filled with pure graffiti. A number of new writers came into play, who were able to spray at weekends only, as they had to work during the week. Those people who know me, know, that I still have my problems reading styles. This time […]
