    had to go null vote. i mean those drippy tags and bombs on page 1, i dont think are art, but street "art" i think is art becuase it is more likely to brighten a random persons day than a real dirty tag. i mean seriuously people, put yourself in the postion of the average citezen, would you rather see a big clean stencil of a violinist on the corner or a dirty, drippy tag on a electrical box.

    i would consider graffiti as an art if its a nice burner or production....but come on if scribbles on a wall or even toy tags arent considered arent then why are there murals of scribbles hanging on a museum wall.....or why is a mural made by an elephant considered to be art .... its just splashes of paint on canvas.....thas not art....any retard can do that......so to me graffiti is art and vandalism at the same time....

    gesus, if your an open minded person, you won&#39;t take this offensively:


    stop being ignorant.




    now, if you are an open minded person, you would realize im not saying that to insult you or make you seem like a fool.

    just because someone isn&#39;t skilled at art, dosen&#39;t make it not art. you&#39;re basically saying "that looks like shit, it takes no skill, and it is vandalism. therefore it isnt art"- which is an ignorant comment

    theres nothing wrong with saying "that tag looks like fuckin shit, it sucks"



    now, if you reply calling me a toy and telling me how much more you know than me, you&#39;ll just proove to me youre ignorant. but i&#39;ll give you more credit than that, because i think you&#39;re smart enough to realize i wasn&#39;t rippin on you by saying that, i&#39;m just making an attempt to expand your mind
    :lol: SHUT UP TOY IM BETTER THEN YOU

    but seriously i do see what your sayimg but there no way i will EVER call toy shit art yo, its just how i am once u get to a certin skill it becomes art till then its ugly

    like im sorry yo but if u think toy shits art then i think u might be the one whos being one sided yea i was once a toy a few years ago did i ever consider what i did art no... i still dont think my GRAFF is art i admit other peoples night be heads like seak, totem, daim, daddy cool, i can go on forever with names but im not going to bottom line is toy stuff isnt art i never seen anything from you artwork wise... so i cant really say but if u havnt been writing for awhile u jsut might be blinded by the light... or u might be one of the type of people who sticks up for the lil man which is cool and all but what ever yo.. you and me will jsut have to agree too disagree... but i do want to know how and why u consider toy shit art?..... or if i miss took your post im sorry please make it into simple people terms if thats not what u were saying

    i look at my toy ass tags from 3 yrs ago. i see art. i see very toy ass crappy art. but art none the less.

    like totem does art no? its cool. but yo compare that to i duno.. .da vinci... hum... totems shit now looks easy n pretty simple... bah he busts pieces in a few days. da vinci spends 8 months on one lil painting. u just cant compare the skill levels... but are both art? figure it out yaselfs.

    i got more stuck on defending the priciples of "art" in general that actually this specific thing.. i just thought it was wrong of you to think of art in general like that.. but in this case, it&#39;s a fair judgement you have and there&#39;s not much more to say that that.

    some people here are just fags thou

    i need to put some words in. first of all this thread is going great and getting some good discussion going. nice job gesus

    alright most people that are old will only consider graffiti that is on paper or in a black book art just becasue it isnt costing them tax dollars to me removed around the city. but ont he other hand i have seen many adults who have complimented on filled throws just because they are amazed on how it happens.

    for most adult once something hits the streets in their opinion they start to hate it becasue of the fact it was done illegally but on the other hand if they had seen a production go up they might compliment on the artistic skill and the tallen it took to put it up

    i dony know if anyone is getting what im trying to say but i smoked alot of hash last night and i think im still wrecked


    feedback&#33;

    edit.

    dont get me wrong, i love destroying my city and it gets me away from the rest of my life, like school and other things i just dont want to think about at the time.
    i had stated this earier but its still the truth and for most people its what drives them to do graffiti and destroy their city.

    No, even tags and hands is art, why?, because the handstyle is the most simple representation of graffiti, so, graffiti = art, hands = art.
