    If it started around 1970 its about 30 years old so that makes it a baby in art terms right? Its only the beginning! So how could peolpe sit there and say its dead when there is still more things to organize and take over? So this thread is for the people who know graf will be around til we go to another planet then it will be about bombing that moon with a spray truck, what.........nwo bring back goldberg..........peace 303

    "graff has been around since people have"

    let me explain why this is bullshit. When "people" were at there humble beginnings, they didn't exactly have the mental capacity to do simple tasks, much less graffiti. I'm defining graffiti here as some writing of a nickname or a phrase, done illegally for the purpose of being seen. Do you honestly believe people who were struggling to survive as a species were worried about being recognized by the few scattered band of humans?
    The cave paintings of Lascaux and other places are paintings and nothing more. "fine art", if you could call it that, is in no way graffiti.
    Also, there was no such thing as ownership so there is no way graffiti could have existed until there were laws to say "you can not write on this".

    GRAFFITTI STARTED IN LA. My grandpa told me stories of how him and his homies would hit up their neighborhood back in the 30's.That was befor spraypaint was even made. They would take paint and blow it into bugspray cans so it would spray out the paint.ZTechnically graffiti's been around since heiroglyphics, but fools in LA been mobbin to get ups since before any nigga ever touched a subway car,not to diss though.When I visited NY I was in awe at all the graff history

    Hobo's been writing on freights for a while. But like Esai said writing to "get up" has been around since before WWII out here in LA. People used markers and brushes etc. As far as aerosol shit there are people that feel NY, Philly, even Chicago.
    Los Angeles pre WWII.
