the point is it is taking back public space from the greedy corperations of the world that pollute our eyes with advertising everywhere we go, what do you think looks better? A beautiful piece, flowing with colors and giving life to a forgotten wall, or a stupid billboard, hurting your eyes and demanding that you spend you hard-earned money on some more fast food so you can get fatter and fatter and not worry about the abuse our governments dish out, as long as they can keep you focused on getting that nre i-pod you just saw in an ad.

because it looks better than a manky old plain wall. It also sends a message that the government has less control over us than they or some of us think.

i do it because i enjoy the thought of people looking at it and thinkin "man, who are the people who do this? when do they do it? i never see them but theres always graffiti!!!"

graffiti is expressive, it can be beautiful, political, both or neither, it is whatever you want it to be and theres nothing else like it in the world.

most definately "fuck the government, theyll never stop graffiti. ever."

peace

I think anyone putting that many question marks in a single sentence isn't intelligent enough to grasp abstract concepts anyway, so we're pretty much wasting our time on him.

However, the rest of you might be vaguely interested in what I think.

Graf is a way of thinking. When I look at flat public surfaces, I see a canvas, somewhere I can write. Where before there was concrete, grey with pollution, there's now a piece.

Tags are to me almost like, as silly as it will sound, urban bird watching. It's fun for me to see who's been here, where else they've been. It makes the place feel alive. Tags and pieces get buffed, but new ones appear, it feels like a healthy balance between obeying authority whilst also not kowtowing totally.

When I hold a full can of paint in my hand, it's like holding the power to say whatever I want and be heard. It's a very powerful feeling.

I like the art of it, but also the power of words that it provides. Let's just say I'm planning a few things..

I just noticed the statement "it makes the community look dirty and horrible".

This is an entirely subjective opinion. Graffiti done well looks fantastic and I've spoken to many people, both old and young, including people over sixty and they agree.

You may not like it, but I don't like all the billboards advertising the latest crappy American comedy, or telling me how I should wear whatever new cheap-ass fragrance from Lynx.

Advertising makes the community look dirty and horrible.

normal people look at graffiti and usually think "wankers" if everyone was all "wow so cool" about graff people wouldn't need to be anonymous.

i douubt the old people around my area would agree. i mean when needs spray AYT No 1 on yer windowi think you can let them have a grudge against graffiti. People like graffiti if that particukar piece is amazing. a bunch of tags on a bus stop and no one will like it.
