Like most large cities, Jakarta has its fair share of graffiti. But although a lot of it isn’t too good, some good stuff has appeared recently, most notably on the huge concrete pillars that support Jakarta’s inner toll road.
There’s one piece in particular that I like. Not only is the design great – a cool dude smoking the most massive J you can imagine - but the graffiti artist has also had the audacity to paint it on a busy intersection not far from the Jakarta police headquarters.
And if you’ve always fancied yourself as a graffiti artist, but are too lazy to get off your butt click here for an online graffiti creator!
Other graffiti art in Jakarta:
Pop culture is universal and so it seems are the Simpsons.
Beauty is also universal although this woman's breasts have been "censored"
With terrible pollution, crazy traffic, and destruction of the environment, no wonder many artists have an apocalyptic vision of Jakarta's future.
This one is testament to the global appeal of youth rebellion and punk culture.
