    why is there so much beef in graff? i m in the 303. and its like a drama T.V. when i started graff it was about the art. it wasnt about killing some one if you got crossed on a dumbster. about having friends there for you on your crew.

    So what is graff about?

    Death?

    Freindships with krew?

    Getting up?

    art?

    or what the fuck? let me know.

    Ego.



    Most people in graffiti have big egos, otherwise, they wouldn't want to mark their territory and where they've been by writing stuff everywhere.
    When egos get bruised, especially the ego of a maladjusted insecure twentysomething guy, people get their panties in a bunch and shit talk pops off.

    Graffiti is user defined.
    No rules or guidelines for the lawless.

    There isn't that much beef in graf, it is just the beef there is you seem to always hear about.

    Also any group made up of many young men, being all macho, is bound to have beef

    because graffiti artists are violent criminals.... They do not know how to interact with society. Why you got beef?

    its about getting attention while acting like we hate getting attetnion... and the visual attraction of seeing it..

    anyway its narrow minded to say whats graff about as if theres only one answer, theres tons of aspects to every catagory, and within those aspects theres a million other aspexcts linked... but and thers still many main aspects directly linked to "what its about"

    im guessing you made this post to hear people respond that graffiti is about any other thing but beef, probly cause you rin a down position right now

    beef is an aspect that comes with it, the sport


    take any sport... hockey, its a sport with desgin (which is attracive), fun to participate in, other aspects come are ego and attention people kinda go for and is a part of the motive (feels good to get attention as long as you dont drarw attentin to that), and yes beef is another aspect, can be to impress people as well as anger revenge (kill two birds), and often starts a chain reaction

    people beef as humans in whatever interaction situations

    why do we beef (in times)

    make a list of reasons... whcih can apply to graffiti or to large scale country wars... whatever see if you can think of some reasons and ass to the list
