On Graffiti

2 men were on a train, passing through a run down area. One man said to the other, "Why do you suppose poor areas are riddled with this vandalism?"

The other man replied "Because they are scared they won't be heard"

Some graffiti is cool.

I'm not against it or anything.

It's like dogs pissing on everything in sight to mark it with their scent. There is some cool artsy graffiti I've seen

Graffiti is good if it's not some chav with a pen writing "jimbo woz ere"

There's a tunnel near my old college that had some great art.

Graffiti is to art as gangam style is to dancing.

tbf i think the urge to let anyone know you're here and you have a name is pretty sombre and highlights something quite important

Street art is a way to say FUCK YOU, THE MAN to whatever degree you want.


Sometimes you steal chocolatefrom the convenience store, or write 'BUTTLYFE' on a train car.

Sometimes you put beautiful things on places that admonish beauty, like an oppressively boring facade, or a building that's now vacant from the mass class struggle and economic loss it's undergone.



Sometimes the Man tells you that art is only what dead old pedophile white monks centuries ago and you will never get there and people would rather pay hundreds of dollars for a nice fake print of a Rembrandt for a poster than $5 for real art that an artist created in front of you or at a time of anguish or at a time of joy.
So the artist says 'fuck you man, I don't care if you buy it, I just want you to see it... I just need you to see me... it has to be possible... it is possible...'


and it is

Some graffiti can be good.

I agree with the other man.

I like good graffiti art. Even when it's not 'quality' though, there are some somber implications as Will stated.

In an ideal world people would make graffiti art not just because they feel the need to be heard. I've heard of people allowing graffiti on their property but the city tells them to remove it because it encourages vandalism. :/

Graffiti is awesome when it tries to send a public message.
