    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

  • Personnaly i think banksy is an artist

    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.

  • Beautiful Street art

    Graffiti is literally art but it's illegal on structures.
    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.

  • A way to broadcast messages!

    Graffiti can be a very good way to broadcast messages to a lot of people because the graffitis are often painted on walls in the street.
    Graffiti is art because some of them are very beautiful like Banksy's ones. But in another way, Some of them are ugly, Useless and just deteriorate public places.

  • Graffiti is creative

    Graffiti can be a gift to the community if done properly. Although if it vandalises or destroys certain places in cities or towns then I do no agree with this art form. The area must give permission before anything is done by the artist otherwise it would be classed was illegal and destructive.

  • Graffiti is a form of art

    Although it is wrong to graffiti over walls without permission, It would still be classed as art. Many graffiti artists do this for reasons other than boredom. Some include words in their artwork to make a point across, Or some prefer murals and street art. Whatever they decide to create will be art and it is not our place to judge that, Even if it is more preferable to seek permission first.

  • Graffiti is art.

    Graffiti is a form of 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, Producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. Graffiti serves the same purpose as well. There are murals that are commissioned to be painted, So not every graffiti artwork is vandalism. I agree that it's not okay to vandalize without permission, But it's still art regardless even if you deny it or not. Most of the time, Yes you will see wordings, Names and tags which is a type a graffiti. There are more graffiti types. There are murals out there that don't include names, Gang signs etc. I will say that yeah that is vandalism. There is a graffiti artist called Banksy. He is famous for doing political, Controversial messages, And he did artwork before where cities have asked him to do a mural for exposure. The exposure helps. Most of the time, The artist's purpose is to say a message. A lot of the murals will have diversity, Representation about poverty, Racism, And other social problems. That is art. Art can be anything. There was an artist before who used a urinal to represent that people's depiction about art. Just because it's illegal and has a bad reputation, It doesn't mean it's not art.

  • This is a form of art

    Because this art form allows to convey a message. It's a good way to express all the feelings of the artist. Sometimes the grafitis of the artists are vandalism but the others artist like Banksy are using stencils to be more clean. This form of art allows to have a different audience than in museums and it's free to everyone to see these painting whereas the museum are chargeable. For the end i would say that the term "art" means works that have a strong message.

  • Is Graffiti 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

    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.

  • Graffiti can be Art or Death

    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

  • Most Graffiti Is Not Art, And Even Graffiti That Is Art Is Still Wrong If Done Without Permission

    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.

  • Graffiti si notre 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 pointless

    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 no be

  • Against the law!

    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. 👩🏼‍🔧👨🏼‍💼

  • No way illegal is not art!

    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?

  • Graffiti is vandalism

    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.

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.
