    this thread is mad frustrating.

    graffiti is art. But at the same time its vandalism.

    on a legal wall, its allowed so its not vandalism of someone's property.

    then it can only be art, and not vandalism.

    on any other surface its classed as destruction, but in my opinion its still art.

    arrgh what the fuck i cant even type what im thinking my head is fucked, the only word i can think of is CLOSE

    why does the punk have to be white you fucking retard? a white punk destroying property? if you're talking about punk being thugs, ever heard of the L.A. riots? lots of mindless destruction there, guess whos hands caused it?

    and if you're talking about punk music, not all punks are white you stereotypical retard, ever heard of bad brains?

    white punk, holy shit, why didn't you just say "stupid fuck"

    i just read the rest of your post you racist stereotypical fucker, i wish i knew you in real life so i could belt your fucking skull in, the only thing i want total annihilation of is you and your stupid, narrowminded views

    you obviously dont know shit, graffiti doesnt tolerate stupid fuckers like you, this shit is two tone you fucking prick

    my philosophy is that graff is a form... its vandalism... its a part of urban life and art has form... so.... if your letters flow then its art...

    i feel that graffiti is art 'caus vandalisim is just destroying something while graffiti is self expression and makes every thing more colourful than plain concrete exept 4 toy shit (like mine) that gets buffed really quickly <_< :blink:

    lots of people including me think graffiti is art. it is self expresion, people like to look at it, even the tags if they are nice not scribelings with a crappy marker, but if they are done with a flow pen or paint marker on nice thick ink marker then it is art. AND IT LOOKS GOOD!!!!!!

    i think that taking uniform, typical letters that have been around for centuries and stretching, warping, and giving depth and volume to them so that they become another object in itself is most definantly an art form. whether your writing it on a wall or in your blackbook, its graffiti, its a style of art just as is baroque or renaissance art. just look at the crazy colors people put in their pieces that make them pop out and grab your attention. i bet alot of writers know way more about standard art theory then they realize, because you learn so much from graffiti alone. its takes an incredible amount of skill and persistance to create a burner, and graffiti has been recognized worldwide, whether people consider it a plague or a beautiful artform. its been around for over 30 years and its for sure left its permament mark on the art world, and its become almost a landmark for cities like ny and la

    i hope i didnt sound like too much of an art student :blink:
