With gangsterism rife in the ghetto, graffiti is how rival gangs mark their territory or intended activity. Although illegal, graffiti is now considered a serious form of art amongst many practitioners and is also a form of expression among countless voiceless people. Standing proud of the clouded wording in the background, the viewer is given a glimpse into the soul of a man, who is also the ‘villain’. Is the expression questioning, accusatory, acknowledging, or contemptuous? Dressed in a suit and boasting a modern haircut, the lucrative rewards of his trade, this one looking over his shoulder could be a brother, son, father, friend or foe
