Graffiticking: Mixed media on paper

I have always been fascinated by graffiti on subway walls, of how a piece comprises so many layers of spots, splashes, stains, textures and paints created over many years - some glue that didn't come off, some bill or notice that became a part of a piece of art, a few dribbles of paint here and there (not out of carelessness but of the fear of getting caught) and so on. In this piece, I tried to reproduce those textures, layers and colours through mixed media on a stray piece of calendar paper.
