    i would never write about graffiti cause people just don't understand it and thats good. i think some people i could bomb their front door with them watching and they'd stand there wondering what the hell was going on and by the time they realize what happened i'd be gone. oh yeah about the topic. i think if it has tons of style and great colors and a good grasp for what they are doing than it is art, but some toy doin a JNCO tag on his school bus is vandalism.

    funny.......

    well this is odd because I am writing an article for the local paper on graff so I feel your pain.

    Personally I would say that graff at it's heart, and I mean HEART is about creativity. The line blurs into vandalism in only a few aspects. When graff is done on public or private property YES of coarse it's vandalism but in the fact that it takes creativity (even the most busted gang throwie or pen tag took someone to CREATE it) is at its heart .....art. Graff can be looked at as nothing more than man's basic instinct to scratch on a cave wall to tell a story, claim ownership, or to simply be creative.

    My thought.

    Vandalism = Illegal destruction of another person's property

    95% of graffiti doesn't "destroy" anything. Paint fades.

    its bad enough that you write to get a name up.."cry out to the world"
    but its straight gay when you want your class to know that you're a "tagger"

    wrong. Graffiti = illegal defacement of public or private property.
    if you write with water soluable ink on a storefront, it's still graffiti.
    plus... some surfaces (stone, slate, some concrete) becomes weaker after
    getting painted and even more so after getting buffed.

    * dont paint on stone *

    and then there's scratches and etch....

    think of it like this...
    Everyone likes a well painted 'mural' production.
    Only writters even understand scratches and most tags.
    Art is in the eye of the beholder... and I'd say only 10% of graff woud be
    called art by the majority of people.
