Although it is wrong that does not mean that it is not art. If someone make a huge mural with awesome detail would you not call that person an artist? I know for sure I would. I think that graffiti is one of the hardest forms of art because you cannot erase or stroke, it is hard to get texture and shadowing.
This is a way of expressing your feelings towards Shrek in a compassionate way instead of verbally or engaging ways. Graffiti artists draw Shrek fully nude or partially dressed to show how majestic Shrek really is. Shrek is a big part of our community and needs to be shown to the public!
Whether you like it or not graffiti IS art. The definition of art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture. Is graffiti not visual? Its a way for the artists to express themselves. And it is art.

Graffiti is art because it is something that inspires people and allows them to have a say. For example a very famous one is by meek. It says keep your coins, i want change.This saying was extremely powerful and captured the attention of several people. This saying is powerful. Graffiti has meaning throught the form of art.
I believe that Graffiti is an art when it is used in the correct areas!
When there is a building with just one name that I believe is vandalism!
But overall Graffiti can be a beautiful thing, graffiti is a good way for one to express themselves, to feel free.
Art is what is beautiful, appealing or of more ordinary significance. Art is any feild using skills or technique, art is mainly in form of paintings, sculptures and drawings.
But since dance is considered an art form why can't graffiti? Graffiti is beautiful, appealing and of more sigificances. Thank you.
We need to consider what art actually is; then we can make a judgement on whether graffiti is art or not. If you look up the definition of art, it will predominantly say that art is a way of applying or expressing human imagination in a way that we can see it. Art is used to self express yourself in a creative ways - such as a painting. Isn't graffiti a way that people use to self express themselves in a creative way? If graffiti isn't abused and solely used to vandalise, it is art.
I feel that art can be shown in many ways, it expresses an artists creativity.. And in most cases are beautiful pieces. For those who feel its vandalism well yes your right but that not the point.. If the art piece is very inappropriate then it shows a point a message to things that may not want to be said.
Graffiti may be wrong an illegal but how many people here have done at least one thing illegal in their life? I know I've done it once or twice. Graffiti is an art of creating inspiring messages or portraits of meaningful things. Although it may be considered an eyesore to one person, think of the artist. An artist did it for a reason weather he or she is trying to make a point of opinion or just plain having fun. Instead of looking at it as an illegal picture on someone elses property, try taking a look at it as a piece of someone's artistic ability. The artist is expressing him or herself in a unique way of art. Just like carving your name into a tree or wooden pole, you want people to know that you were there. Weather writing on a simple paper and placing it in a book or carving names into a park bench, we all have done it. I guaranteed you that all of us, including me, want to be remembered when we go away.
Graffiti is illegal and shouldn't be done. If the person is so interested in painting on buildings and other property, they should do it on paper and murals. Then I would call it art. Doing something illegal should not be called artistic and beautiful in any way, shape or form. It is wrong and shouldn't be done. Everything beautiful should be right.
Even if your Picasso graffitying on someobody elses land is not art and you shold not be able to do it! Its a waste of space and destroys beautiful buildings and landscapes! Sure it might look nice but its ruining beatiful places by pointless drawings! It is Not art at all!
I hear people all the time try to excuse graffiti as art. But the truth is that it's vandalism and destruction of other people's property. Someone may like graffiti and consider it an art form. And they try to use the definition of art to excuse it. But those people are missing a major point about what art is. Art is created by commission or on the property the owner wants the art made on. Most graffiti is done without the consent or permission of the owner of which the graffiti appears on. The graffiti "artists" go where ever they want and destroy other people's property. I wouldn't want someone to tag up may walls of my building, just because it's their "self-expression"... If I asked them to do so, then it's a different story. Why doesn't the graffiti "artists" do their work on canvas? Why do they need to tag public property? Self-expression isn't about destruction, it's about creation. Graffiti destroys. Go create graffiti and display it in a museum or an art show.
The google definition for graffiti is writing or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place. This exactly enplanes the meaning of graffiti and how it is most likely illegal, how it is vandalism and that it really isn't art. But say you were talking about "graffiti ART" that was not illegal and someone allowed the graffiti artist to spray random words o their building then that could be considered art but in other circumstances I would not consider it art.
Graffiti is the marking or defacing of another person’s property
without consent from the owner. It is different from street art, which is
an artistic work with permission from both the owner of the property
and the Council. As it is wilful damage, graffiti is a criminal offence
under theGraffiti Prevention Act 2007
In my opinion I think that in most cases graffiti has no meaning and is pointless, it has no thought of consideration. To be honest I can only think of one graffiti 'artist' and that's Banksy this is mainly because he is the only one who adds a morale or political message. However, overall graffiti spoils a nice day out for lots of people... I would also like to add this survey is slightly unfair due to the fact the main people who disagree with graffiti are older and don't used the internet or if they do they don't use it for the use of completing surveys
No i Think Graffiti Is Not Art , Why ? Because Its a Terrible Thing the thing people write on people Property , and they have to pay for it , its so wrong. Their Paying for People Believes WHat is stupid in my eyes. It Makes Places Look Like The Ghetto , Or a War Zone. People Might Be Scared to Live there.
Graffitti itself is not an art. Graffiti itself from what I know are just vulgar, crude and trashy words. But graffiti art is an art form born from graffiti techniques.
Of course sometimes there are meaningful phrases painted and sprayed in a beautiful way but more often than not its a joke.
Graffitis not art because it is vandalism and it damages other peoples properties. Street art is acceptable because they always look nice and they have permission to do it. Most of the time graffiti is wrong and ussually vulgur. So thats why graffiti is not art because it is wrong.
Even if you think it is art it is still illegal. Also vandals might put themselves at risk just to write their name on the side of a bridge. Is it worth risking your life for that? Plus it gives a bad image. What parent would ever want to send their kid to a school, covered in swears and racial statement?
