    Are You Kidding Me

    Graffiti is art. I make graffiti but not on like buildings or trains like you always see in a town. No I do it on paper. Ever some people do it for a living on a building but they get payed for it and stuff. I love graffiti just to see what other people can do is amazing. Its...

    Urban Calligraphy

    Legality aside, I completely agree that graffiti is a bona fide art form. In the small town where I used to live, there was a nearby overpass with train tracks running underneath it. I used to go there to get out of the town, also because I love the sound of trains. Often times...

    Most Of It Anyway

    I do but I think there should be more places so people can share their creativity and show it off legally and not to get in trouble with it however not all of it is good, I don't like it if it's rude or just saying someone was at the place loving someone, I think that's a bit...

    Please....

    ...if you are going to tag...don't bother if you can't spell. Just draw with the spray paints, no writing is needed, especially if you can't spell

    Expressing yourself in any way is considered

    art in my point of view. Grafitti is SOO cool and can show a lot about a person.

    Of course it is art. As long

    as you don't damage a monument or a historical place.

    I Photograph It

    I just have this fascination with graffiti.  I photograph it sometimes.  Any time I visit a new city, I make sure to find places with interesting graffiti to look at.

    Graffiti Lettering

    Tagging lettering is fascinating to me! Albeit at times the artist may well be defacing another's property, I understand that. On the other hand, the lettering / artwork is it's own language, perhaps even a "code" if you will. I especially appreciate the shading, or the...
