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.
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.
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 dangerous and there are many reasons for that. An example is that 2 boys drowned whilst spray painting in a storm water drain when flash floods hit. Another reason is that many graffiti artists spray paint on moving trains. Graffiti artists also graffiti in ridiculous places such as on a bridge where they have to hang upside down do so.
Even the destroying other peoples property is illegal people pay for it people pay for walls and lands people can't just come and do whatever they want without the governments permission or the land owners permission okay sure the scary might be 2 dollars cleaing it costs 10x a lot
Graffiti can be beautiful it can stand out it can be very beautiful. Graffiti isn't vandalism its not like they are doing anything illegal like robbing a store. Criminals from cities push away people to leave the city but graffiti makes people want to stay and not go. That's why graffiti is art.
It is very costly to remove. So, when you do it, you get charged 400$ and the cost of removal. As well as, a lot of community service. Sometimes, jail time. Sometimes, you can die. As an example, a talented person at graffiti was graffiting a train tunnel and died from a train. It doesn't welcome people. For example, people think it is done by gangs and are scared. Also, Seattle wants a lot of people to come but has too much graffiti. In addition, in some places it is so bad that when one piece of graffiti starts to fade away someone puts another coat. It is bad for the economy . For example, it can be inappropriate. Also truancy. In addition it wastes polices time.

The detention of graffiti is "writing or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place." Illicitly (illegally) is criminal, things that are illegal are considered crimes in the eyes of the law. Therefore graffiti is not art, it is criminal and unnecessary; I personally do not view crime as something to be admired and called art, artwork is in Museums and Galleries not on street corners and park bench's.
Graffiti is art because it lets people let out their otherwise unknown creativity and lets them draw what ever they want to draw without people saying it is bad as it can be anonymous. Most people do it at night time as they will otherwise get caught. Yes graffiti can be vandalism as some artists tag the walls with their symbol but some graffiti is beautiful and inspiring and it helps people to have teamwork if they are doing a very big artwork
Don't scribble on my wall with your self expression, if you like it so much do it on your own wall so at least its not illegal. Don't try to excuse your "art" work by saying its self expression, self expression is a good thing not vandalism so STOP GRAFFITI ON MY WALL
