    Not sure if you know this already, but you are used as an example for the definition of graffiti.

    ArtLex online art dictionary at http://www.artlex.com/ defines graffiti as below

    graffiti - A drawing or an inscription made on a wall or other surface, usually so as to be seen by the public. Generally regarded as vandalism -- defacing public or private property -- and illegal; it may also be regarded as a form of art. One of several artists whose work emerged from this kind of work is that of Keith Haring (American, 1958-1990).
    The medium graffiti painters often employ because of their portability and built-in applicators are aerosol cans of paint. Graffiti painters have coined a number of their own terms. Their works are often called "tags" probably because they so often produce images of their names,also known as tags. Their painting is called "tagging." Tags that are small and simple are "bombs." Common sites are walls, roofs, train cars, and other vehicles.

    Examples:

    Blade (American), Swinging Letters, 1980, subway graffiti photograph by Henry Chalfant (American, 1940-), from Subway Art by Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant, 1984.

    Keith Haring (American, 1958-1990), Subway Drawing, 51st Street, c.1980-1983, chalk on black paper, photo from estate of Keith Haring.

    Keith Haring, Keith Haring drawing in the New York City subway, 1981, photograph of the artist drawing with chalk on black paper.

    Keith Haring, Monkey Puzzle, 1988, [116 k,] acrylic on canvas, diameter 120 inches.

    King157, This is Real Graffiti, c. 1999, San Jose, California.

    Bronx Burners, Serve and Per, long tag, c. 2000, New York, NY.

    Bysk and Topek, tag on a billboard for Shea Homes, c. 2000, Phoenix, AZ.

    Evak, untitled piece, c. 2000, Wisconsin.

    Gnes, untitled piece, Arizona.
