(Scotsman)   With resurgence of street murals and stencils, politicians try to decide what is graffiti and what is street art. How about if you do it on property you own it's art, but if you don't own it, it's vandalism. That seem a good definition, guys?   (edinburghnews.scotsman.com) divider line 9

robbiex0r: And if that vandalism increases the value of your property by $100,000....then what subbs?


I would recommend selling it as fast as possible so you could finally afford to move out of Detroit.

/not subbs

No way, you've got it backwards.  It is WAY WAY easier to get the unwanted paint off the glass.  Surely you meant to caption the second photo as the vandalism.  It will be much more difficult and costly to get rid of the unwanted image on that person's building.

I've always decided that if I ever owned a business, I would let some street artists do up the sides and rear. But at least let me have the (front) facade.

No matter what they put there?  Cockles and ballsacks?  Naked ladies?  Hate crime material?  Insults to your business?  Just ugly work?  One person's art is another's offensive material.

I guess the point is it would simply be correct of them to ask you first. (I think your statement kind of implies you're making an agreement of sorts with them.)    All other permanent street art is vandalism, even when it's pretty.

If I didn't like it, I would either tell them to redo it, or have a different crew go over it. I probably would give them terms, first. No this, none of that. I am all about the color schemes of graffiti, more than the actual picture.

When I lived in Chicago and took the train downtown, there was a cemetery along the way where the outer wall was nothing but spray can. Most of it was fantastic, even if it was just a name. That was my favorite part of the trip. Tell me this isn't art (SFW).

/just a heads up, you are talking to someone that has several graffiti fonts for Photoshop

Well, then what you're describing here with your hypothetical building isn't graffiti at all.  It's commissioned artwork.

And I didn't love your link and wouldn't necessarily call it "art", but that's in the eye of the beholder, and those samples are still a hell of a lot better than what the idiots were doing in the 70s.

I suppose there's a distinction between "tags" and more artistic stuff, but I don ...

Fair enough.

Ned Flanders: Well, I guess this is a case where we'll have to agree to disagree.
Principal Skinner: I don't agree to that.
Mrs. Krabappel: Neither do I.


Her last name's Krabappel? All this time I've been calling her Krandel. I feel like such an idiot!

RockofAges: Pangea: Gothnet: JeffreyScott: I agree with subby and most other: If you don't own the property or have the owner's permission it is vandalism.

I would also add:  If you have to do it under the cover of night, than it is also vandalism.

No room for political speech in your world?

Surprisingly, you can convey a political message without vandalizing property.

Suprisingly, you can convey a political message by erecting a guillotine. Actually, it tends to work much better than a polite, legal, letter to the editor.


Are the enraged citizenry, who are killing off politicians in your fantasy, actually dissuaded from spray-painting privately owned walls in between their anarchistic beheadings?

Because your imagined revolutionaries sound like incredible pussies if so.

Keep that definition in mind when you spray-paint the side of your house or condo and the local HOA comes calling.
