I am not talking about tagging ( the scribbly writing you see on walls )
I am talking about actual pictures such as :
And of course the infamous Banksy :
Personally this type of graffiti i love , they are artworks IMO .
We have a rich culture of it in our cities especially Melbourne , Certain streets are famous for their amazing pieces .
In the city there are legal walls to graffiti some shops commission artists to apply their art to the walls even councils have been known to ask artist's to paint walls as most " taggers " will not "bomb " walls with artistic graffiti on them .
I dont like the look of tagging personally , i think its ugly and i do not condone graffiting peoples homes and fences .
Some would say that ALL graffiti is an eyesore and some people in Australia are kicking up a stink at Graffiti ART classes being held .
What are your opinions is graffiti Art or vandalism ??
