|Do you defend urban graffiti?
I love the graffiti, but I think it's shameful that it's putting an added burden on the property owners to have to clean it up. I would love to see it on large canvases though. There are some really talented people out there.
graffiti? graffiti! no, I don't defend it, because all it is is nothing but vandalism!
I beleive it is an expression that should be free to express but not to deface ones personal or public property!
I defend it to some extent...there are many street artists out there who are undeniably talented, and their art should not be suppressed. However, simple tags that are done quickly and thoughtlessly are not art, and only serve to make their environment uglier. I think graffiti should be criticized on each piece's artistic value, and not grouped together to condemn all street art.
I don't defend it, but I like it.
It depends. If you're just gonna tag your dumb-ass name and be gone, then get the fuck out of here, nobody gives a fuck who you are unless you can really make some amazing ART with your talent. Graffiti leaves so much room for social commentary, for artistic ingenuity, and absolutely has the ability to reach out and touch a passer by
some of it's just some stupid shit.
Yes. We have unusual graffiti here in San Diego on our freeways. They are splattered with paint from water balloons. Every time I travel, I look at their graffiti including old carvings in Siena, Italy. Rome had beautiful graffiti. Mexico's border fence outside of San Diego also has amazing story telling with their graffiti.
Yes, when done well.
of course...but only the tasteful work of an artist...not scribbling on private property. I appreciate statements that are relevant to a time.
YES. IT. IS. ART.
To a point, because its their way of life whether we disagree or not its a lost battle and will always be there. I think the history of it like the Artist Keith Harring was to convey a message, a feeling or a warning of the society or reason being expressed.
There are two sides to the argument--that they are only doing what billboards are, and that it's criminal defacement of property. Both sides are true. Most of it is inartistic to me.
