Cooltourspain gives its opinion about street painting
We believe that it’s the responsibility for city councils all around the world to promote in a regulated way the street painting.
If teenagers wouldn’t have to risk their time and money on graffiti walls, there would exist a more powerful modern art industry.
Street art is an increasing demand on today’s society!
