    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

    I Do

    Anyone can write their name, therefore I do not consider that as art, merely vandalism and someone with too much time on their hands and a need for attention Murals or indeed graffitti is a tourist attraction in Belfast, there are many areas that in the past were associated to...

    Not All Grafitti Is Art

    granted, in the larger cities, some of the grafitti is amazing. beautiful colors with drawings or sometimes lettering.........but, that ghettofied chicken scratch **** that you see on buildings as well, now that is certainly not art!

    I Photograph It

    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...

    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...

    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...
