    !!!!!people who refuse to embrace graffiti!!!!!

    Does anyone hate it when you pass graffiti on the street and its really good but no one bothers to look at it except you, and even if you told them to they would be like ehh whatever. they just cant except that it is art. its like there trying to boycott it or soemthing. once some kid was looking through my blackbook at some of my art sketches and then he came across pages that were just graffiti and he just totally fliped through them with a smirk on his face. right then and there i took my book from him and walked away cauz i thought that was quite disrespectfull. then there was the time i went to france with my family and i was lookin out the subway window at all the graffiti and then the some french dude looked out to see what i was looking at and then just made a weird french pissed off tone and looked back up. I felt like saying something but hes french so he wouldnt understand. I even have friends who have been with me when i have wiped out my marker and said dont you have anything better to do?. i responded with "it dosnt get much better than this" I honestly like the fact that graffiti hasnt really caught on where i live (north of toronto) but in all honesty it does kind of piss me off when people disrespect it. anywho i know im gonna get these responces saying "they have a right to disrespect it" but what i really wanna hear is some stories related to this topic. have any of you ever gone as far as fighting someone who has dissed your graffiti.
    anywho post soemthing!!!!!!!!!!

    yeah, the thing that always gets me is when i see people buffing walls, and not just shit covered with tags but like illegal productions, and i just can't see how they can stand to destroy art like that

    The way I look at it some people will never like graffiti because of whatever reason. But I can't really worry too much about it. After all it's just graffiti. To each is own.

    i guess tax payers have to pay for the removal of graffiti. i think i like graffiti because i have such a hate for society and government. i wish we all just lived like animals. i would use my shit as a marker and tag up the world
