Girafa is one of the most prolific graffiti artists. I’ve seen his work as far south as Burlingame before, but this is the first time he’s hit EPA, I believe.Usually he paints giraffes in yellow and black. Some of them are quite tall- he may occasionally use a stepladder. Here is a link to an interview with someone claiming to be Girafa, thanks to Plug1 and I Hate Graffiti magazine. (Edit: Plug1 wrote in to say that he knows that the guy being interviewed is actually Girafa, for sure.) Here are a bunch of Girafas, more typical examples, photographed by the esteemed Plug1.
While I’m linking to other people’s sites, the good folks at Bay Area Society of Exploration have done some particularly strong work of late. These lads and/or lasses are risking serious legal repercussions to bring us interesting photographs, so check ’em out. This is East Palo Alto graffiti. Kind of ominous, isn’t it?
