 Pandemic graffiti from around the world -  PHOTOS

Graffiti has never been so powerful—or urgent. In the past months of the global coronavirus outbreak, local artists have used the walls and sidewalks of their cities and towns as canvases.

As the shutdowns and shelter-in-place orders spread across Italy, Spain, Germany, the U.K., India and the U.S, the Krylon cans came out. Filled with technicolor Covid-19 balls and crowns and faces covered by PPE, these murals exhibit fear and fury, solidarity and hope—and nearly universal gratitude to health care workers.  

The pandemic has robbed millions of their livelihoods and ability to touch and hug. But not the desire or defiance to hit the empty pavement to create outdoor art galleries.
