Graffiti has been a practice since the discovery of the cave wall, though it has never gained general recognition. People either see it as vandalism or an art form. But there is one group of people that haven't been able to see what all the fuss is about. For the first time, blind people will be able to have an opinion on counterculture art work.

Scott Wayne Indiana, an artist in Portland, Oregon, decided to randomly distribute braille graffiti in the City of Portland. He chose five different sentences that read something like:
"You don't have to be blind to see that the writing is on the wall" and "Tiny bubbles that randomly rose from the paper in this arrangement." Stats for Braille Graffiti Trending: Older & Average
