Graffiti wallpaper or graffiti wall mural wallpaper, all mean the same thing. So, for our purposes here, we will call it graffiti wallpaper. Because even if we leave out the word mural in our description, the word “wallpaper” in the description definitely implies a mural. So, the keywords here are graffiti and wallpaper.
While not all graffiti murals are wallpaper, all graffiti wallpaper are wall murals. But not all graffiti murals are made of wallpaper. A good example of a graffiti mural that is not a wallpaper is outdoor and street graffiti murals. You can not have a graffiti wallpaper as an outdoor mural. This is because wallpaper intended for interior walls. Otherwise it cannot stand the beating of outdoor climate such as rain and direct sunshine.
Graffiti wallpaper will add color and style to your interior walls. And it will also give your home or club an unexpected dose of excitement.

To illustrate how far the art of graffiti wall murals has come in Kenya, Meet Bankslave who hails from Kibera informal settlements or slum. He’s known as the founding father of Kenyan graffiti street art.

Conflict and Adversity Graffiti
Graffiti mural art is intrinsic to the human being. In any situation man gives to create, and in moments of crisis, distress, of uncertainty, graffiti thrives even more so.
We see images all over the world of how graffiti art is one more weapon in the middle of a war and a form of expression in conflict zones. Take for example South Africa during Apartheid.
Blue, white, and orange stripes began appearing on roadside boulders in South Africa: the jarring tricolor of the old apartheid flag.
White extremists, mostly disgruntled Afrikaners, were emboldened enough to paint them at night. Government road crews toiled furiously to blot them out. But the masking paint never quite matched the color of the rocks. And so the clumsy erasures only served to draw more attention to each new hateful act of vandalism. In this way — through an obscure little graffiti war — the racial neuroses that still plague South Africa were exposed more vividly than in any news article.
