The Graffiti of War Project

The Graffiti of War Project Experience the Emotions of War thru the Warfighters' Eyes
Providing a unique experience of war through the eyes of those who have and are living it. Through their emotional expressions on unconventional canvases the world can imerse themselves inside, The Graffiti of War.

As this war has entered its tenth year our nation has become silently divided, the widening divide between soldier and civilian grows with each year. It has become more and more difficult to understand the life and trials of a deployed soldier and their family. Although most Americans support our brave men and women, they don’t grasp the magnitude of what affect this conflict, these deployments have on the families and on the mind and soul of the soldier. In documenting these images created by soldiers, marines, and airmen, our aim is to give a unique glimpse into the minds of these warfighters. To give America an inside look at what has gone almost entirely unseen to the vast majority of the public. Many of these images are raw and created in the moment on unconventional canvases in a very unconventional war. This art, this emotion on canvas will help civilians understand what it is to be separated from family, to lose one of your own in a blink of an eye, to get a feel, a taste of what 15 months fighting a very unpopular war is like. We want to bridge that divide growing in America, we want to bring back the empathy that is lacking for these men and women, and empathy is an emotion that requires understanding, which is our mission. To bring understanding to Americans not familiar with the emotions of war.

Mission: Our purpose is to gather art created on unconventional canvases by military service members, from spray-painted slogans on captured enemy vehicles, to graffiti seen inside porta-potties, to elegant and dramatic unit emblems painted on blast walls.
