According to the cops, my paintings of flaming "erections" are vandalism. They don't understand my art... :(

You destroy buildings and infrastructure. You make people have no choice to see your lewd work. You bring down the value of hard working people's property. You make people feel like they live in a war zone- not a nice clean place. You tell me? Art should inspire, not drag down or take away from people.

Art is Art. And having a boring ,plain, abandoned building sitting around for years isn't doing any good.
I say let your art explode out of you :) use it to humor others ,or to inspire. Lol. Don't let yourself be another cardboard cutout. Oh and if the building is being used,Don't express yourself there xD

I find it as art... But that doesn't mean that I agree with vandalism. If they want to graffiti their own house then SURREE, go ahead, but not public places.

If you do not have permission to paint whatever it is you painted, it is vandalism.

That's not a problem, I just need to know if I need subscribers to earn, I know they're a bonus for views, but want to know if you can "only" earn ad money at a certain amount of subscribers. Or it doesn't matter and all you need is good views in your video.

It depends on how you look at it. The people who do it can often be rude people who just enjoy vandalizing people's property. Other times it can be those who are trying to express their artistic side.

I think of it as vandalistic art. Because it's illegal, but it looks really cool.

You wouldn't think so if you paid money for property and it brings down the value. Good luck selling it. When it affects your own pocket, you may think differently.

Yes honey, but if you look at his other questions, he is only looking for legal places to do it. Like in Pittsburgh when there are places for graffiti artists.

It's often amazing art. The problem is when someone dies that art o. Someone else's property without permission it can easily become vandalism .

Technically, according to the law, it is vandalism. The greatest artists of all time could have painted in an illegal spot and it would still be vandalism. However, no matter what it says, I believe it is art. Even if it has a cuss word or is bashing the government. Art is expression. There are plenty of paintings with hidden messages against the government. For that reason, graffiti is art. (in my opinion)

I think it's art, no matter where you put it. xD loads of haters, but hey. If you ask me the stuff the paint is awesome! Only if its not something... Ugh.... But, I used to stay at this real rezed out reserve... It was a fly-in... Graffiti, boarded up houses... Real dirty lawns and stuff. Ironically I thought it was cool. Which is why I like graffiti. cx I ramble too much....

It depends on the graffiti. If it's a bunch of hurtful slurs and insults then no. its just a huge written hurtful mockery. If its a beautiful image or scenery used to brighten up the slums of the urban hell hole, then yes it is art.

Depends, It could be both while it can be one or the other. Vandalism is illegal. So If you put your art up illegally then you are technically breaking the law but that graffiti can be classified as art (to some people).Personally, some graffiti is actually pretty good. If it's just cuss words, what ever that's not art, that's just words and paint.That's my opinion on it. Even if it's illegal or not, if it's art, it's art. Got to give them credit.

I think graffiti is art. However it depends on if it was legally or illegally done or not. Vandalism for example. I would also think it would depend on if it was appropriate or not...

Both. It's art because SOME of that stuff can be pretty cool....Though graffeti allays seems to be ON PRIVATE PROPERTY! People have talent, but they don't know how to use it.

It depends what you paint and where you paint it.
But what creative people paint it's art, and what gangs do is ewww

That all depends on what the message is. if its the crap gangs do, or a meaning less message, then its not art. But there is good/great graffiti that is art. Dont do it on someones prized/valued things.
