Did you know the singular form of graffiti is graffito? Graffiti art hasn’t exactly hit the mainstream art scene, but it’s a distinctive aspect of life in the big city. Much of it is silly: obscene drawings or indecipherable chicken scratches. But in recent years, critics have begun recognizing the talent and wit of particular artists such as Banksy and Lady Pink. Enter: Graffiti Puzzles!! Graffiti takes a big step on the way to legitimacy with these cleverly-packaged puzzles. The mock spray cans look just like the real thing, and even sound like it when you shake the can. This will be a fun gift for my puzzle-obsessed mother. She may plan on putting together a sweet seasonal landscape or Santa’s workshop at Christmas, but I think I’ll surprise her with a slightly more contemporary design this year. Available in New York, London, and Tokyo.
