IES PROFESOR MARTÍN MIRANDA 3º ESO B – C 2016 – 17
The graffiti is located in the theater Victoria in Mendez Núñez street in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. It was made in 2006. The graffiti is inspired on dancing because in the theater they give dance lessons. It is very big, it is all over the wall. It also covers the shop at the bottom of the graffiti. This graffiti shows a beautiful woman and more people dancing. You can see many light colors. There are two white windows. In the foreground you can see a dancer and the background is painted blue. At the top there is a balcony, and at the bottom there are some stores. We think it represents the freedom of expression through dance. This graffiti inspires us to think about freedom. The picture makes us feel free and positive. We like it because it’s so colourful and special. It represents freedom and I think it’s imaginative and extraordinary for the people.

The graffiti is located in the city of Seville, Spain. It was made in Martirio de San Andrés neighbourhood, in a five storey building. The graffiti shows a woman carrying her baby. The woman looks worried or paying attention to something while she's holding her baby. She’s carrying him with a handkerchief. She's wearing a blue shirt, some necklaces and the baby is wearing a white sweater. I think it represents the strength of a mother, mostly in countries in Africa, India… with less rights. It inspires me to think about how bad is living in these countries, and how much effort they have to do. It makes me feel sadness due to her life conditions, and pride for her courageous behaviour. I like it because the message it represents can make people aware of how the people of these countries are living. By Yaiza and Daniel
This graffiti is called “Envía cariño”. It’s located in Puerto de la Cruz,Tenerife,Canary Iislands,Spain. It is the size of a wall and it shows a black kid with braids on his head and a sad face. This kid is wearing a long white shirt, some black pants and flip flops. Right next to him there is a message in black letters that says “envía cariño al 7709”. I think it represents that the children that live in poor countries need affection too. They need food and water but they need people to be kind to them and treat them with respect and sweetness too. This picture makes me feel sad and makes me think that we should appreciate more the simple things that for us mean nothing but everything for them. By Arume and Stefani

The graffiti is located in Puerto de la Cruz, in Tenerife. ItÂ´s a big graffiti, it takes up a whole wall. This grafitti shows a man speaking through a megaphone. A shoal is coming out from the megaphone trying to catch a fish wich is swimming alone and seems a little different from the others. The little fish is trying to escape from the others. The man looks colorful and bright. All the fishes are monochromatic. We think the man represents the government trying to oppress a singular person to make it be the same as the others, and it is trying to be itself. By Kylian and Cynthia
This graffiti was made in Festival del Paso in La Palma, Canary Islands, on the 10th September 2016. It is on a huge wall, but we don’t know the measures. The graffiti represents Tanausú, a native who defended the island La Palma from the conquerors. The Canary Islands history is very exciting. The graffiti represents the connection with nature.
how the artist painted this vivid graffiti, because the natives of the Canary Islands were so connected to
nature. It’s a very bright and
colorful graffiti. The body of Tanausú is all covered with flower, trees. On his left shoulder there is a statue, and on his right shoulder there’s a black bird, called here “Mirlo”. His face is looking down, and he’s grabbing a stick in his hand. That stick is covered by something like rocks. It represents the connection of the man (in this case Tanausú) with nature. We think that because his skin merges with flowers, trees… We like it because it’s so colourful, and representative for some people, and because we like nature, and we are from the Canary Islands and Tanausú is someone special for our islands history.

In the background you can see the head floating with the mask and the gaze.
