Art Or Vandalism?


Graffiti is a word, phrase, or image painted or drawn somewhere in public, like on the side of a
building or on the walls in a restroom.
Art or vandalism? That’s the debate about graffiti. For some people, graffiti looks ugly and
damages the property where it’s left. Others consider graffiti a form of self-expression and a
celebration of public spaces. The word comes from the Italian graffito, which means “a scratch,”
and like a deep scratch, graffiti can be difficult to remove.


Art is the expression of ideas and emotions through a physical medium, like painting, sculpture,
film, dance, writing, photography, or theatre. If you love the creative process, maybe you'll devote
your life to art.
The definition of art is constantly changing and evolving to include different types of activity, and
the question “What is art?” has been discussed for thousands of years.
Some people believe that art is the attempt to create beautiful objects, while others call art all of
the works that appear in a gallery or museum, whether beautiful or ugly. Art can also mean a
specific skill you’ve learned, like the art of baking a delicious pie

Is graffiti art or vandalism?

Everyone is going to have a different opinion on this topic.
My beliefs are that graffiti is both art and vandalism, it depends on what it is and where it is.
Vandalism is something inappropriate for example, swearing, inappropriate images or images that may affect someone. It's also vandalism if its drawn on a gravestone, someone's property or a baby. (And of course others).
As I said graffiti isn't always bad. If it has a positive message, nice picture or in a place of importance I would say it is art.
