    Bombing in my opinion is what's making the community think of graffiti as more of vandalism than a work of art. There isn't anything wrong with bombing but murals is what brings out the true meaning of graffiti. I would say that bombing is more vandalism than murals.

    What do u dorks out there think??

    I prefer both-I like going out and destroying things with tags and throws but I also like spending hours on a piece or a production with whoever-if it gets dissed or buffed-fuck it....as long as I get a picture I could care less.I just like painting.

    its all about balance.. tag shit up on the way to a wall, do your peice, and bomb with your leftover paint on the way back :dazed:

    bombing is "more vandalism"? just because it isnt as complex doesnt mean it's not as valid as an art form.. bombs, throwies and handstyles are what you make of them.

    to unite to keep graff strong.

    here's the problem

    see bombing is the best without it graff just doesn't exist...our problem is kids who go out and nail everything in site with their trash tags and cause graff to have a bad name...etching small store front windows is a good example of what I am speeking of.When this ends the "vandal squads" will have no business because the truth is nobody cares about piece spots or chill spots whatever you call them and nobody cares about bombing on most shit out side as long as location is correct. Maybe I'am hard to understand but I think that alot of the guys in this for a while understand what I'am saying after a while one get's a sense as to what is good to bomb and what will just get people heated at graff...

    sorry but thats my opinion

    graffiti is graffiti vandalism is vandalism.

    people do not like their things to be written on no matter what, if its pretty or ugly.

    i prefer bombing over everything. e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. what better feeling is there than being on top of some big ass rooftop and finishing your outline? nada.

    dank you are absolutely right
    and as long as you want to do rooftops and what not you'll be fine but when some idiot in your town decieds he is going to get etch and "wreck shit" it's going to become harder for you to do those rooftops get me?

    wtf...legal walls are not the true essence of graff......anyone who does graff just to be an art nerd and do legals isnt a true writer....you gotta bomb...thats wat its all about.......theres no risk to doing legal shit all the time.....bombing gets your blood pumping.....you get more props from a throwie on the side of a billboard then a legal peice...go ahead and hate on this if u want

    i enjoy bombing more...murals are nice but they're too perfect.i like seeing things that weren't ment to be perfect...it shows more charecter in my mind.i enjoy it all but i seem to enjoy the simpliar stuff more.
