Graffiti art, Wellington, 2004

Graffiti artist Juse 1 paints a wall at Waitangi Park in Wellington in 2004. Some forms of graffiti became more socially acceptable in the 1990s and 2000s. Many towns and cities have officially sanctioned walls for graffiti pieces (murals). Some artists have even exhibited their work in commercial and public art galleries.
