    yo ive noticed that lately a lot of peoples graffiti styles are forming into a more abstract kind of graffiti. graffiti used to be pretty much just bubble letters and block letters and more than that but now its formed into something that dosnt resembele words at all. I find it kinda crazy but koo at the same time. neways post some shit if ya know what im talkin about and give some feedback yo!...

    this is what im talkin about. dont get me rong it looks dam good

    ps. i am drunk right now so bear with me !!

    It's just perception really. You call that abstract, I call it a wildstyle.

    Illegal art, fuck that. Who the fuck cares! everyone and their best friend has an opinion on what is and what is not graffiti. what makes graffiti be graffiti?!

    It has letters? it's not good enough
    It doesn't have letters? it's not good enough

    some dude climbed three stories to put a happy face on the side of a building...but it's not graffiti.

    If it doesn't look like something five thousand people have done before, no one likes it. It can't be graffiti because we're too busy protecting our pile of shit. Goddamnit I don't even write graffiti.

    I like to paint silverware neon colors and glue it to things. I'm not graffiti. I suck.

    daaaamnit i can't even spell correctly.

    hey, everyone just does their own thing, if you like arrows and such, do it, if you like neon sporks, put em up, but you cant expect other people to like it or to think it's graffiti. I dont like abstract 3d, it doesnt fit what graffiti means to me. does this mean its not graffiti? by no means. what makes graffiti graffiti is going out and doing what you want to do. i hope that made sense i keep losing my train of thought.....

    I fucking hate graffiti. The only reason I come here anymore is because of the art-oriented kids around the site....and "graffiti writers" who are mature enough to drop the "yo, that don't fit with the lingo I rock! It be wak son!" mentality.

    Just do your own thing, and appreciate everyone else for what they do.
    Anything past that is just a label.
