Kenya: the “murder of art”

Gream Houze opposes the ban on Matatu grafitti in Kenya: “The ban on Matatu grafitti is a sad one for me and I call it “The Murder of art”. I thank a matatu poster for what I know about Che Guevara. The visual image on him on a route 58 matatu was an amalgam that evoked immediate response in me (of wanting to know who the hell he was).”
