"Ceci n'est pas graffiti"

By exploring the nature of "Hangffiti" I realised that it is nothing but the image of graffiti. Therefore, influenced by Magritte, I painted a piece of graffiti on a cardboard by using basic elements such as the arrows, overlapping and connected lines and a highlight.

René Magritte painted the famous "The Treachery of Images" painting in 1928, stating that the            image of an object as well as the word that describes an object can never be the object itself.
