    I think that graffitti is art no matter what side you take
    on one hand you have peices which are pretty to look at and have artisic value, where you can appreciate the effort behind it. And on the other other hand you have bombs, where the art comes from the meaning and risk behind it, where some one is willing to go out and paint no matter what the risk, and the rebellion behind the paint covered wall..... art goes deeper then pretty colours and flashy effects

    graffiti isn't art or vandalism, it's a mixture of the two.


    art + vandalism = graffiti.

    Graffiti means any writing, printing, marks, signs, symbols, figures, designs, inscriptions or other drawings which are scratched, scrawled, painted, drawn, etched or otherwise placed on any structural component of any building, wall, fence, sidewalk, curb or structure or other facility on public or private property, without the consent of the owner, regardless of the nature of the material used in its application.


    So if Vincent van gough did stary night on a freight( if he was still alive) it would be art,,,the canvas isnt by law yours,,,regardless that its vandalism,, it is art...

    personally this is what im out to do,, convey a image of great visuals and get people thinking

    i hate how cops say well thats just vandalism,,,,im like "No Shit" but its still art,,,

    though throwups and tags are ?-able

    i think that graffiti is art in some ways but vandlism in others. it is art beacause you are trying to get ur name out there and for people to notice ur tag. if u are just scribbling on shit and destroying things then that is vandalism.

    it all depends on who's doin it and why........some people do it for the art like pieces and productions.....and some people do it for terretory, vandalism, or tag bangin (gang tags) etc.

    in my opinion, graff is about creativity and trying your best to do something original. if you got the same cookie color wildstyle as the next head, i think its much more artistic to have a really hot, original looking throw or simple.

    thats just my opinion

    I think it is an art form, but in the sense that its an illegal art form is tha reason its called vandalism, another reason its art bcuz its in a graffitti "artist" name, but society calls us vandals, i jus think anything that can catch ur eye from off a highway or wen ur sittin on a bus, if u can actually appreciate graff wen u see it, i think of it as art in my mind and appreciate a good peice wen i see it not jus toy bullshit, i jus guess some want 2 b called vandals instead of an artist, id rather be an artist...
