Trinidad Graffiti

Hey, you sleeping here


Graffiti and a homeless man at an abandoned NP gas station in St. James, Trinidad, West Indies.

When this photograph was taken, a homeless man was sleeping on a cardboard box next to mounts of garbage and filth. It is an accurate representation of the level of vagrancy which Trinidad and Tobago is experiencing as it becomes a part of who we are.

The Graffiti on the wall of this bay reads L O U S E. At first the typography was difficult to decipher as it was thought to be J U I C E. This work has been removed. See clues to the word and other forms of graffiti by the Artists and as thebookmann header

How funny.. i do believe it actually says "Louse".. there have been many of these popping up around port-of-spain, trincity, and the westmoorings area. Incredibly interesting.

It does say Louse. Louse is a grafitti artist whose work is all over Trinidad. Don't know his or her identity but the artwork is fantastic. (I'm not Louse by the way...)
