Opinion on graffiti? Feb. 9th, 2013 @ 03:56 AM Reply

How do you feel about graffiti?

I'm not just talkin' bout names being written here and here, but having people do giant works of art etc...

Yes it's illegal so none of us do this ever, but your opinion on this?

Discuss? :)

I like it. As long as the people who do it stick to industrial areas and concrete walls and stuff, it's all good, there's a lot of fantastic motives out there and I like the fact that it's all non-profit. Those who make great graffiti are true artists. Then there are assholes who tag trees and signs and shit, which is just stupid. And tags = not graffiti.

I don't mind it as long as they have skill. It makes it more fun to watch trains go by whenever they have some nice artwork to look at.

I don't like the "If it looks good" argument. It's too hypocritical. People act like the law is their own moral code too often. I think if people do it, sure. I don't care. Obviously I think a skilled artists piece is nicer to look at.

Controlled it is OK. I love it

But, I mean, painting somebody's business wall does not look right, specially those tasteless tags. That shit does not come off easily.

I forgot... our government sometimes allows good graffiti artist to decorate the city walls, but you need a permit and to compete to be able to do it

Graffiti is illegal, but it has turned into a form of art on it's own, so I don't think the people worry about that much.

they should make it legal in some places.

graffiti partly reflects the culture. it allows people to expressive their feelings, just like popular music. (i enjoy looking at those drawings too). i don't see what harm graffiti would do if it is restricted to certain areas.

Besides me not having anything against Graffiti, the stuff I'm seeing every other day is ... baaah :(

Though, I encounter Graffiti mostly in poorer districts.

pretty much this

pretty much not this. You don't pick and choose what graffiti you see or whatever art you see. Expression will sometimes be interpreted as gangsta.

If you think tagging is so cool, you can tag yourself in the ass!
If you think tagging is so fucking cool, you can tag yourself in the ass!
But don't come and tag on my window because that window I'm going to look outside of and it's not so fucking easy to look outside of a window full of graffiti, am I right?
So if you come back to tag on my window then I'll tag in your asshole!
Graffiti is the very lamest thing I know of!
If you're a tagger you are really, really stupid!
First of all, it's ugly, and it's expensive to remove and there's almost nobody who thinks it's cool at all.
Tagging is not cool, it is much cooler to get involved in politics!
Tagging isn't cool, it's much cooler to collect butterflies in a small purse!
Tagging isn't cool, it's much cooler to sleep so long in the morning that you come too late for school!
Tagging isn't cool, it's much cooler to be rude towards parents and the disabled!
Tagging isn't cool, it's much cooler to smoke when you're in fourth grade!
Tagging isn't cool, it's much cooler to rape and kill prostitutes!
Tagging isn't cool, it's much cooler to jump out of a plane without a parachute!
Tagging isn't cool, it's much cooler to do bungee jumping with steel wires, instead of elastic cords, so both the feet get ripped off!
When you have to inject a heroin syringe into the eye because you have no veins left in the body, then you're cool, but when you tag, then you're not fucking cool at all. I even think my mother is cooler than those who tag.

That picture makes me think of NG somehow. Like the portal page gathering. :P

90% of graffiti is work of vandals. Ugly shits just to deface materials for fun.

I don't mind graffiti in places that it doesn't really matter, like on industrial train cars

I do mind, however, when it's somewhere like a public park or pretty much anywhere residential

It drastically brings property value down

I don't really like graffiti either, but you have to admit that some of it is really, really well done. I agree that it's pretty dumb, but I can at least acknowledge that some of it would look pretty good on a canvas.

Some of it would look good on a canvas, I live in the south there isn't any "good" graffiti here.
