Graffiti Art in Costa Rica Surf Town

Global Graphica is on a surfing trip in Costa Rica this week, so the posts may be fewer and farther between as we take a much needed vacay and struggle to find a reliable WiFi connection during our journey. You’ll be seeing some pix of the visual culture we find interesting or striking in this amazing Central American country. (More posts related to Costa Rica.)

Below is some graffiti art we found on a vacant billboard in the Pacific coast surf town of Jaco. The outdoor advertising space proclaims “Your Business Must be Here!” But some graffiti writers gave it some spray-can touches that make the board aesthetically striking and fun.

Surf’s up. Gotta run. (More on our surfing in Metro Surf Club Project Blog.)
