    Ok look graffiti like the name its vandalism if its on the streets on the tube or so on but if u get it on a legal wall or so on u can call it art but legal graffiti in it self is not graffiti its not how graffiti was ment to be
    it is supposed to be in on the streets in the metro in ur face and so on thats where it belongs!
    Graffiti is vandalism and thats it!

    I say if its a well done piece, its art, but if its a gang tag or some shitty throwup, its vandalism.

    people hate things they don't understand, i bet you 500 billion dollars that if you were in a well known gang that you would say gangs kick ass, and not what your saying now. Like the people that hate graffiti, they don't understand it, so they say it's ugly, stupid, and pointless.

    This is not true, I have been in and wanted out, got out. When you join you signing a death sentence, I can name of countless statistics on why Gang members don't truly enjoy being in. Now don't get me wrong some do love it, but if you actually study and experience it than it is a different story(many more want out, or peace). Yes, I have left one and I have been studying gangs for about a year or more. And I never really liked gangs just the friendship, so f'n stop think'n you know what your talk'n about when you don't. Not everyone is alike, f'n stereotypes. But this is not what this forum is about.

    But as far as Graf being illegal, look at where it came from. I've seen studies go as far back as the era where people would write in caves,etc. known as hieroglyphic, writings in the acient days. But that time it wasn't vandalism it was writing, not even art, it was a voice, a language. Graffiti became illegal when we named it graffiti and made it illegal. So it is vandalism today, due to the law. But if it used on anything else where the law can not call it illegal, it is not graffiti, it is art, a language, retarded, etc. Graffiti is defined by todays law as illegal,vandalism. Art is not unless this "art" is used as a tool for illegal use. In definition it is I quote:

    n : a rude decoration inscribed on rocks or walls

    n. pl. graf·fi·ti (-t )
    A drawing or inscription made on a wall or other surface, usually so as to be seen by the public. Often used in the plural."

    No where does it say it is illegal, unless the term is used with the law. The law uses it as an expression of definition. Graffiti is a word used as a tool, used by the law it is vandalism. Used in any other way, think of it what you want. So when you have a view, back that crap up or have people think you have no f'n clue why you say it. I don't give a crap enough to continue...
