    Good Afternoon

    This topic has been brought up many times before. Although there is no specific thread it's best to ask in there.

    Both.

    When you see Graffiti / Art on trains, cars, tunnels, etc.. To the city that called "vandalisim" hence the name "vandals"

    But when you see Graffiti such as pices were there are like millions of arrows coming out and such.. that more considerd of Art (legale), not vandalisim..

    I consider graffiti an art as long as it looks good to the eye....if its just a shitty peice that isnt even remotly readable i consider it more vandalism....but i still respect it

    When used in a non-legal sense it is called "vandalism", when it is used in a legal sense it is called what ever you want to call it (eg. Art, etc.). Plain and Simple... but many people don't tend to think so.. many people think it is all considered vandalism. :wacko:

    graffiti is vandalism. the definition is writing on walls without permission. . it is only art when you do it like a business. like people call you and ask for something to be painted.

    well..i was talkin to some1 bout this the other day and the thing is, most graffiti artists [email protected] and artists" do graffiti because its art, and becuase its illegal..my personal opinion neways..but alos..things like billboards, used by media companies without licences..is exactly the saem as "graffiti" as defined by law, we just dont recognize it becuase weve come to accept it as normal.

    Peace

    my opinion: its both.

    yes, it IS vandalism, obviously. but simply because it is done illegally doesn not mean it has no artistic value. art is expression. When you paint a piece, you are doing more than trying to vandalize the wall, you are trying to create something that looks good to you. when you bomb, you are still expressing yourself. art does not HAVE to be pretty, and lots of great art isn&#39;t. Paublo Piccaso&#39;s painting "the aficionado" (<- i hope i spelt that right) is a fairly ugly painting in my opinion. yet no one would say its not art.

    art does not have to be created legally nor does it have to be pretty.

    marcel duchamp (again, i&#39;m bad with spellings) hung a urinal in an art gallery years ago and called it art. He also took a print of the Mona Lisa and penciled in a mustache, and put THAT in a gallery. who has the right to say it is or isn&#39;t art? that&#39;s what is great about art. its in the eyes of the beholder.

    Graffiti is vandilism, unless it is done on a legal wall, then it isn&#39;t vandilism howevre it may also not be art....Depends on how you look at it I guess.

    i don&#39;t understand how people can&#39;t see it was both. Legality is nowhere in the definition of art.

    you guys are idiots, its both. it being art has nothing to do with it being vandalism. i could sketch on peoples property and its still art but its also vandalism.
