My views on Graffiti is it Art or Vandalism that is the question many people want to know there are two sides to this debate the people who feels graffiti is art and also a form of self expression and the others who feels it is nothing but ruthless out of the way vandalism Both sides have a very good argument but only one can be rite before we are able to take any sides we must first know what exactly graffiti art and vandalism are According to Oxford dictionary Graffiti is writing or drawings scribbled scratched or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public placeNow vandalism defined by Websters dictionary is deliberately mischievous or malicious destruction or damage of property NowArt Defined by Oxford dictionary goes ahead to describe Art as the expression or use of creative skill and thoughts usually in a visual form such as sculpture creating works to be treasured mainly for their emotional powerBased on these definitions it is now clear that to me and hope to you that Graffiti is vandalism and not art as people want to believe People may ask if the description of these words alone can be used to determine the debate this question can be depended on the intentions of the writer or sprayer of the graffiti Vandalism becomes vandalism when its intention is mischievous and carried towards destruction of property without the permission of the property owner designates and authorized agents Let me asks you a question is tagging a wall with spray paint or the back of a school bus chair with an ink pen Or the windows of a bus with markers is that art no Is not Art is not that art is something everyone should enjoy Not a bunch of sore loser with Spray cans and ink pens painting and scribbling on Public walls Buses fences or somewhere that does not belong to them
