There is some graffiti that I actually like and that I would call art, but the majority of the graffiti here in Jeddah is not what I would consider art at all. It’s crude, unimaginative, and a nuisance. And it mars the natural beauty of the Red Sea (above) and defaces the public art sculptures (below) – many of which I have featured previously on this blog.
The sculptures require constant maintenance, yet it seems as soon as they are repaired and cleaned, new graffiti appears. Some of these pieces cost millions to construct and for someone to take a spray can to them just seems so wrong to me.

About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
