• Graffiti is wrong.

    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.

  • Because it is cool

    Beacuse it lets people express them sleves br doing art hdgjdf dd ddd h hh hhh h hh h h h h hh h h h h hh hh h h h h hh h h h h h h h h h h h h h hh h h

  • Of course it is

    Aight first of all a lot of you are confused with what graffiti actually is. Some graffitis are done illegally and can be considered destroying other's property or vandalism. A lot of graffitis however are done legally. A lot of writings on shirts today are all done by graffiti artists. If y'all don't want shirts with cool writings on them, then choose "no". Graffiti is an legitimate artform and one of the earliest elements of hip-hop culture along with mc-ing, bboying, and dj-ing. So y'all haters who are not willing to look at the big picture and think what graffiti really entails can call it vandalism, crime, whatever you want but remember if jackson pollock splashed his paint all over the wall on the street he would get arrested too. If piccasso suddenly got bored and started painting his thing on a police car he would get arrested too. Any art or painting can be done illegally. It's a matter of where and how to do it. So just because you saw some dude tagging on someone else's property doesn't mean graffiti as a whole don't deserved to be considered an art. Open up your mind and be able to accept a legitimate artform as an artform. Just because you don't like the style, and just because you ain't familiar with it doesn't mean it deserves destructive criticisms and hatred.

  • If graffiti is painted on the artist’s own legal properties, It is categorized as art, Not vandalism.

    Graffiti should not be labeled as vandalism. While a good amount of graffiti are painted illegally on public and private properties, We should not obliterate its intrinsic quality—art. Graffiti is art without a doubt, The basic steps of graffiti are the same as painting—sketching, Outlining, Shading, And coloring. Moreover, Graffiti requires more skilled techniques like sketching in mind and, Technically, It couldn’t be removed easily.
    However, If graffiti is painted on public or private properties, It usually causes various issues. Most people could not accept it due to the fact of it being painted illegally, Some say it is visual pollution instead of art. Another reason that people couldn’t accept graffiti is for it’s unique aesthetic, Graffiti usually contains messages of politics, Freedom, And controversial topics, Some even spray symbols of gangs to mark out their territory.
    In my opinion, Illegal graffiti should not be labelled as art. We should support graffiti artists who paint their work on their own legal properties, As we do not have the right to restrict what one wants to paint on their properties. I have seen many spectacular graffiti art works on the internet, The artists paint on various materials such as their backyard fences, Walls, Furnitures, Glass etc. These artists’ uses fantastic techniques to create such graffiti, Which should definitely be marked as art. To conclude, In the case of painting on the artist’s own properties, Graffiti is categorized as art instead of vandalism.

  • Graff is art

    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

    Yes, that doesn't make it OK

    The person in "no" is inappropriately adding a moral dimension to the definition of the word "art". "It's OK" is not part of the definition of the word "art". "Art" is a created expression intended for someone to admire. Just because it is "art" doesn't mean we have to accept it, except arguably if you mean "graffiti" in a broad sense, referring to the sort of style that is seen in graffiti but performed on one's own property or with permission. Some cities even have legal graffiti walls just for the purpose of graffiti in order to deter illegal graffiti

  • Graffiti is definetly 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.

  • Graffiti is an 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.

  • Definition of Art.

    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.

  • Voice a message

    Banksy is an anonymous England-based street artist
    Banksy displays his art on publicly visible surfaces such as walls and self-built physical prop pieces.
    Banksy no longer sells photographs or reproductions of his street graffiti, But his public "installations" are regularly resold, Often even by removing the wall they were painted on

  • no it's not

    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.

  • Graffiti is not art, it's vandalism!

    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.

  • Graffiti Is Horriable

    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.

  • Graffiti itself isn't really an art to me.

    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.

  • Graffiti is NOT art!

    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!

  • Graffiti has no meaning!

    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

  • Meaning of graffiti

    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.

  • Scribbling is not art work

    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

  • Yoooo its not art

    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.

  • No it is not art

    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?

I find graffiti a wall art but nowise a vandalism. Vandalism is painting on the monuments, ruining public assets or ruining graves. More on the issue is available on here:

Graffiti isn't just paint you throw on the wall. It takes time to paint the wall. Graffiti foes Take skills. Graffiti is done by people who love drawing and wants to share their great work they did. Drawing disrespectful things on the wall isn't right but you can't take it out on the ones who are doing great graffiti.

The value of "street art" is very powerful. Street art is a way to express différents Things . In fact, it can displease a fact of society or simply convey a powerful message about their political visions, which hurts them, disgusts them or makes them react. The advantage of the street art is that we can talk about taboo subject through an image And also allows us to let our imagination speak.
