    Not that I encourage Graffiti, but some of these folks are really good artists.

    Graffiti has evolved hasn't it? I like to think of them as urban street murals. Some of them are fantastically artistic. I still consider graffiti to be vandalism. Mostly personal and gang insignias to show territorial boundaries. An eyesore. Most folks can tell the difference between vandalism and a work of art.

    I'm not too sure about that, Will. I remember seeing some fairly impressive graffiti on the walls of Roman buildings in Pompeii, dating from the first century A.D. :rolleyes-20:

    I think it all depends. There is some pretty crude, (in form and subject) street art and some pretty sophisticated done by real artists.

    As we all know, art is subjective. Just like the art of photography. One must understand its origins, the cruelty of urban street life of the 60-70s. What is crude or objectionable to one, will be creative and appealing to another. There can be an underlying narrative behind it. And that alone, is enough to deem him/her a real artist. These above, and many others across the country and the world, are a far cry from the graffiti I was subjected to daily on NYC subways back in the 70s.
