    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...

    I Do

    Of course it is art. As long

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

    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

    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!
