everyone, you must note, graffiti, in itself is an art form. people have become professional street artists and earned a lot of money. there are people however, the rebellious teenagers, who graffiti on public places and they are doing it against the law. professional street artists, on the other hand are doing it with authorization. therefore, graffiti is not bad, the people who are doing it illegally are the ones to blame.

also, if the community accepts graffiti and parents allow their children to develop their interest in it, they can become proffesional artists. From being youngsters who graffitied against the law, they can now be highly payed professional street artists who are doing what they enjoy but in the right way.

personally, I think that graffiti, being a type of expression, should be legal. Don't we have free expression as a right? Granted by the Constition? If I am correct, it should be legal anyway. So what's the problem? Even if it's against the law, people will do it. It's art. We are artists and will do whatever we have to to express ourselves through art. Even if all we have are some paint cans and a blank wall. I mean, what's more eye cathing than bright neon colours on a grey wall? Most graffiti, I find inspiring. I mean, that person came up with all that covers that wall and makes it beautiful. Graffiti is and art form that I find beautiful, inspiring, and spellbinding.

Not necessarily. It's bad in the sense that I don't want it on my property or on any property owned by someone that hasn't specified they want it (eg. gang related graffiti on someone's home, or hate symbols on someone's home), but I don't think all graffiti should be completely outlawed. If a business hires someone to graffiti their building to make a point or just for the looks, it's not bad.

And that is the problem with graffiti — it is “unauthorized”, as the dictionary says, and it destroys someone's property. It is a crime, like stealing, because it steals the property owner's right to have their own property look clean and nice. And it makes repairs costly for the property owner; graffiti scribblers never offer to pay the cost of repairing their destruction, which may cost thousands of dollars. Would a graffiti vandal want you coming into his or her house or apartment and smash down the front door because you thought the place would look better without a door? Of course not. Yet a graffiti vandal can cost a property owner much more than the cost of a door. It can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars in repair bills, or lower the property's value by thousands of dollars — just with one mindless scribble acIf you do graffiti on the streets it is vandalism and is against the law. It can also cost the government loads of money to paint over the graffiti. Graffiti can also get you into stealing stuff cause all of the supplies costs so much money. Graffiti can even put you in jail for a long time. Those are some ways graffiti can be bad. ross a fence or wall.

People think graffiti is a work of art, but it's a crime for the following reasons:
1. They paint on walls and property that are not theirs to decorate.
2. The owners often have to pay to get rid of this.
3. Many people's opinions are against graffiti
4. it's illegal in many areas
5. It destroys whatever natural essence there is to a neighbourhood
