    holy shit, this is stupid. I don't even know why the fuck I'm posting this but it made me think, wow some people are really dense. Today in class the subject of graffiti in art came up, and i coulden't help but think, oh boy we're gunna get the stupid people who think they're cool claim graf is a legit art form. The funniest thing I thought is these people probably don't know shit about it only that they think it's part of the "cool hiphop culture." fuck that shit makes me upset, misguided intrepertations supported by morons, can't get any worse. Of course anyone who had any actuall insight about it didn't say anythign ebcause trying to argue it as art is lame. You can agree or disagree, anyway I'm curious to see the flak and maybe praise(?) this gets. :lol:

    it is art...

    it doesn't have to be argued. if it wasn't art i doubt i would be into it. vandalism isn't cool, self expression is.

    I had to do a project on Australia. Yep... It's down there somewhere!

    no rules saying art has to be legal to still be art. I think graff is an art...even handstyles. Its largely hated and dismissed unless its in the form of legal productions, but it still qualifies none the less.

    yeah there are some artistic influneces, perhaps in some pieces. but in all seriousness no fucking critic is gunna devulge a writers life from his piece. But who knows this day in age anythign can be art so I don't knwo what the fuck I'm tlaking about. kill this thread, it was stupid
    and my point wasn't about graf being considered art or not, it was about people representing shit they don't know about. Anyway i don't give a fuck about graf being art or not, epople can argue what they want it doesn't affect my painting

    Is writing you name in the snow with urine an art?

    Well obviously if you've ever done it, you'd know that it does take a great deal of skill and practice.
    Plus like graffitit, a belly fully of beer can help sometimes.

    *edit because I'm typoman today!

    graffiti is actually a part of hip-hop culture...that is, if you think it isn't.

    people like that there's no changing thier misconceptions. and I'm not gunna speak up in class saying I'm a writer so they can bust me or so i can be one of those kids tyring to make myself sound cool fuck that. Anyway i also know graf is a part if hiphop culture but it's evolved form that to encompas so much more it doesn't do graf justice to limit it just to hiphop.
