Typical political paintings on any abandoned building. They paint their party icon, someone crosses it out, they repaint, someone else alters it ... it's like a visual form political snarking, with hints of gangland grafitti wars. (K.C. clarification: "The paintings for the political parties with an X over it is on purpose. On the ballots in Peru the drawing appears and to vote for the party you want you put an X through it. In semi-nonliterate society pictures help a lot. Your picture of the pot “Olla” was for Olantaytambos party who lost the presidency by only 2%. He was a strong militant leftist who wanted to cut ties with the US and join Chavez in a movement to socialize south America.")
