Graffiti 2.0

For the last couple of years, Italian graffiti artist, Flippo Minelli has made people acutely aware of the technology gap between 2.0 nations and the third world. Though the Internet has provided an extraordinary platform for the exchange of ideas, information and social exchange, it has broadened the gap between technological societies and those that remain "offline".

"The idealization connected with these experiences provokes a small-but-important detach of the perception of reality and what i want to do by writing the names of anything connected with the 2.0 life we are living in the slums of the third world is to point out the gap between the reality we still live in and the ephemeral world of technologies."
