    its art if u want it to be an artform, or its pure destruction if u want it to be pure destruction
    there is now way to describe, explain(to the normal non writer society) or understand graffiti to the same depth that it means to us...

    It's like asking if the glass is half empty or half full. It's all perspective. If you really look at it, if you just drank the glass then it's half empty. If you just filled it up, then it's half full. It depends what you do with graffiti.

    graffiti is both art and matter how good it looks, it is destructive, and iilegal ..its also art because it makes most ppl get creative and produce everything from a tag to a piece...everything about it...finding a spot, colors, style, ext..... just thought i would add 2 cents...

    graffiti i snot an art at all,
    if it was art it would be called art

    graffiti is a way to express our feeling to the streets,
    each person have a diffrent ''method'' to talk whit the streets
    and that create beef, talk shit, and the game we have now a day!

    it's vandalism.

    i don't consider "legal graffiti" to even be graffiti. that's just spray painting a wall for money. that's art, not vandalism or graffiti.

    So true.

    Ya, i live in pittsburgh. this kid was caught doing graffiti on peoples property. they let people come in and say what they had to say. He must have felt so bad, because no one was there to back him up. Graffiti is an expression of personality. But he tagged houses. So i agree. Its art, but vandalism.
