Code of the streets? If it's unwritten and people are hating on toys, then how are they (we) to learn. And this whole art vs. destruction thing, it's a fine line buti say graffiti lends itself to destruction MUCH MUCH MUCH more than art. I'm sorry, but if you're going out and doing shit for the art of it all and hoping to have graffiti "progress" and "flourish". Get your ass to a studio or an art school and make a career of your talent. If you want to see art flourish and progress forward then why are you giving it a bad name by vandalising the city walls? Fuck that shit, if i was an artist i would work in a studio, I'm a vandal and damn proud of it, I DESTROY SHIT cause i like to. I got into graffiti so i could see my name everywhere while i take the bus. I didn't get into graffiti with the mindset of 'hmm i feel like expressing my artistic talent on mailboxes" Now, the other side of the coin, i understand that people shouldn't be throwing shitty stuff up. Even if you're just tagging and bombing, you should STILL be in the black book working your handstyle and making your bomb flow. And when you get to painting, streetlevel is not a place to be practicing. Toys should definetley seek out chill spots and practice what they have to do there.
