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.
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
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.
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.
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 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.
It is a common statement to say the beauty is in the eye of the beholderand this is what's going on with that picture For some people they see art like me and others would see this as vandalism it is all about how you view it and if it was ever wanted in the first place if it was somewhere privately owned that yes it is but if it is non offensive and on public property then should be okay in my eyes ps yes I know that I didn't even use punctuation
Graffiti is literally art put illegally on structures. The first definition of art that comes up is:
The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
And who can deny that graffiti is a form of self-expression? It may not be legal, but it is most definitely art.
I do not think that graffiti is art because it is a bunch of letters and it is not very attractive. However, Street art is art because a) it has the word in it and b) because it often symbolises, Such as a hidden meaning. Whereas graffiti usually only has people's names or rude/crude words.
Graffiti is not art because if you don't have permission to paint on a wall or building then you can't do that because it is not your property. People paint on walls that they don't own and they just think that everything is free. If you don't own something then you can't use it and it is disrespectful that people even change it.
People may think that graffiti is art and they see the finished project but no one really sees how dangerous graffiti is and could badly injure someone whom may hit there head when falling etc. . You should not graffiti unless you have a classified permit or get a thumbs up from the persons wall you are spraying or painting
The majority of graffiti is words, Names, Or symbols painted on walls. I defy anyone to make an argument for how those can be interpreted as art. Some murals, However, Are simply beautiful. Others I wouldn't say are beautiful but still require quite a bit of skill. However, No matter how beautiful it is, It's never okay to graffiti another person's property without the owner's permission. How would you feel if someone came and spray painted your house? Unless it was in a design or color you wanted, It wouldn't matter how beautiful it was because you want your house the way you want it, Not how someone else wants it. What's worse is that you might need to be the one to pay to have it repainted. If you're one of the many living paycheck to paycheck or close, You might not have the money and need to look at the thing for an indefinite period of time. If you need to sell your house, The graffiti could lower the property value by thousands of dollars. Of course, Usually it's businesses or abandoned buildings that get targeted. Okay, It's probably harmless to graffiti abandoned buildings. However, Just because someone owns a business doesn't mean that they can afford to clean up graffiti. It can drive away customers, Giving the building a sketchy appearance. Small business owners can't afford that. Bigger franchises might not suffer the same effects, But it's still fairly selfish to graffiti a building without the owner's permission. You're only thinking about what you want, Not what anyone else wants. Instead, Either look into programs that allow people to graffiti buildings with the permission of an owner, Or maybe approach a local business owner. If you're talented and want to paint a mural, A sample of work might be enough to convince a business owner to let you paint their walls. Or, Just paint your own property.
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.
Some people say graffiti is a one way to show creativity in public but in my opinion it doesn't help to improve the environment its pure vandalism, If they want to show their creativity it might be paper or in musuems not in public places where its not belong or to be displayed which is might not appropriate to be seen by youngsters eg. Words that can be explicit that can produce negative behaviour to our generation

Graffiti is yes, Sometimes pretty, However, IT IS AGAINST THE LAW! If you don’t have permission to paint on a persons property then that is what is know as vandalism and you could be sent to prison. If you DO have permission then all should be alright. Don’t graffiti otherwise. 👩🏼🔧👨🏼💼
Imagine a world with a scribble on every wall or area you walk past. Should that be our future? What would kids think once they walk past a wall of scribble with rude words sprayed over it? It can influence children to do they same negative behaviour. Vandalism is negative damage to our society and needs to stop! It can not be classified as art because art is what children look up to and vandalism shouldn’t be what people look up to! Why should destruction and damage to our society classify as art; human creative skill and imagination?
Art has been created for the enjoyment of the people and a form of expressionism. Graffiti on the other hand is vandalism as it is defacing ones property without legitimate permission. Graffiti is not for enjoyment of others and not art. If you spray paint a shirt you are not commiting graffiti but spray paint art.
They are different things.
