badhatharry: I don't know much about art but I like this.

I like it too.  It's not about the art.  It's about respect for other peoples' property.  It doesn't matter how good the artist is, if they don't own it or have permission to "decorate" it, they're wrong.  It simply boggles the imagination to try to figure out why these people think they have the right to do what they do.  Even Inigo Montoya would agree that "inconceivable" would mean what I think it means in this case.

CowardlyLion: Tagging's certainly not art (any more than a child scribbling on a wall is), but actual graffiti can certainly be (and often is) art. Just because you don't like, understand, or care about something does not change its intrinsic properties.


The juxtaposition of these comments (yes, 10$ art school word) is simply phenomenal!

I'm guessing that your attempting to imply that somehow there's hypocrisy or something to my comment, but, if that's the case, you're simply wrong (better luck next time, though). If it's not, then I'm genuinely curious as to your intended meaning.

netflix a documentary called "Infamy"
you'll see that some graffiti is art, and other graffiti is just douchebags being douchebags.

the guy stealing markers and writing on signs and people's front doors is a douchebag
the guy creating giant murals in flood control channels is an artist.

Horseshiat. The same way Pollock is an artist and five year olds finger painting aren't. Getting paid doesn't mean anything, it just means you're getting paid. The people with shiatty tags are just bad artists.

Graffiti means "murals" in Italian, or hyper-literally "scratchings" and mural means "thing on wall." Just because it sucks doesn't mean it's not art.

Tagging or bombing another artist's work is called slashing or dissing, and it's been around for over 30 years.

It's like some people never even saw  Style Wars (1983)?
