I like graffiti when people writes someones name in big letters and decorates it. There's on that says Dave that fills up a whole wall and it's a work of art. I think it looks beautiful. But I don't like graffiti when people just write things like "slut" or "Will has 1 ball." I don't really think it effects the community...well...I certainly don't care.

I think it also depend where people do it, for example there is a very old cinema where i live, which has amazing architecture, and some plonker had to ruin it by spraying his name down the side of it, it was very good but completely out of place.

There isn't much around here. (Graffitti.)
There's a lot in the JOS vid, isn't there?
Mmmhuh.
Anyway. Graffitti, I don't mind. Big deal, some kids got bored and painted big nice bright stuff on the wall.
But vandalism?
Mmmm.
If it's like someone's car then it's fucking pointless and I hate it. That is damage to someone else's property. But like to a building or something...
None of it really affects me.

Well in my village it's rare to see any graffiti, not even up the park. But in the city you get in the subway. The council got companies/youth groups/schools etc. to do paintings under there and some idiots just spray painted their names all over them and now it's awful. I think that's terrible when someones spent so long painting something really nice and people go and ruin it.
They should just make a place where people can go and graffiti all they want...

I love graffiti..like I've said before..but not if it's just random words like slut written on the wall and doesn't look like art. I think vandalism is wrong. Most people do it to people's property who they don't know. That person might be really nice. But, if someone does it to someone else because of revenge or something like that or if the person deserved it because they were an asshole...then they get my approval. Very Happy

Anything you do to someone elses property that "ruins" it without their consent is vandalism. I hate disrespect for others property. Hate it. It bugs the hell out of me.

In the right place, however, grafitti is a great art. Really beautiful, and it makes a statement. Its a fantastic culture, and it can really change under-priviledged kids lives. Purposeful grafitti walls are excellent. Tags which an old man has to clean off his fence are not.

Theres some cool pieces in the Tate Modern, and Berlin has awesome grafitti. Although its still vandalism.

I also really like grafitti from stencils.

i couldn't agree more...i love the kinda graffiti where it's just a person expressing their creative side in a way that society just doesn't appreciate...
but yeah, i don't see the point of fucking up someone's property just to inform the world that 'jo was ere' -_-
