Pichação, also known as "wall writings", began as political statements made of tar in the 1940s and 50s, and were often written in response to the slogans painted by political parties across the street. "Piche" is the Portuguese word for blackness or tar, and Pichação originally meant writing in black. In the 1970s, Pichação almost disappeared, but it was revived in the 1980s by a group of teenagers who started writing their names and the names of their crew in place of political slogans.
