Nothing was destroyed from the paint if i took the time to paint the entire thing one colour no one would care probably?
A free paint job
Whatever you consider art evryone else might not. All this stuff you see on canvases or in gallery is what some have labeled as art and to some its ugly. A lot of so called art to me is ugly and dumb. Some so called artist have absolutely no damn skills. I used to paint just like them when i was in third grade. So to consider something just one thing is simply dumb and close minded. Graff is much more things then simply vandalism or art. It is peoples way of life, there strenght to get through life, the reason they still live, their stress relief, their joy, their pain, their stress, their passion, their way to make a living and their whole life. So me to this cant be summarized in one single term. Some of us do it for the love of drawing, painting and being able to create better products each day. And some simply do it to fuck shit up and be cool and to feel some kind of false rebellion. So whatever your reason is.........do whatever the fuck makes you happy and fuck what society says. Bomb the system.
a stress relief that stresses you out isn't a good idea to reduce your stress
The way I see it the ads all over the place, they are the corporate world's graffiti, if they should be allowed to put there ads up everywhere promoting themselves, then so should I! I mean sure they get the permission from the owners of the property, but the property is open to public view, nobody asked me if I want to see a poster of a burger everyday for example. What if I have an eating disorder and that is just staring me right in the face every single day? I guess what I'm trying to say is don't be a hypocrite! :P
Advertising costs money
If we had to pay people to paint on their things it wouldn't be a problem would it.
They dont go to random bus stops and open up a bench and put their sign in it and hope no one knows.
To me it depends on the intentions of the writer. If the intention is just to destroy shit, to me, it's not art. If it's with the intention of self expression, it's art, vandalism or not.
Also, just because something's illegal, it doesn't mean it's not art. Cops will try to convince you otherwise. In some countries (Tibet for example), certain art forms other than graff are banned. Are they not art because the laws in these countries say they're illegal?
Writing graff on a wall is not destruction to me. Etching and actually breaking shit is.
People who intentionally break things while tagging like kicking out lights on buses, or write on someones house, just give graff a bad name.
toys do not make art. Legend can make real art.
graff is the oldest art form known to man, end of, from basic tags to full blown murals, its all relative, dont get me wrong, im a bomber to the core and only do artistic shit in my blackbook, but tags and throws are still an artform in their own right.
graffiti aint art it getting ur name out for everyone to see
graffiti is vandalism tagging up every mutha fking thing u see
I think it all depends on your definition of graffiti. Is it this:
Or is it this?
They're both graffiti, silly
Personally I see graffiti as vandalism and art at the same time. A lot of the time when I see large murals on walls I think of it as art because it is a form of self expression and it is a form of communication to get a voice out that ins't always heard. But when I look at random scribbles that took no practice on walls that is just vandalism to get people to read your name.
I think it's art homie, I throw shit up for one of my dead boys. Ain't gonna stop, ATLEAST not in the near future
yea its art
