Ruthless destruction or spoiling of anything beautiful or venerable in weakened sense barbarous ignorant or inartistic treatment is what is defined as vandalism in the Oxford English Dictionary fourth edition The definition of vandalism to me ties in with the thought of graffiti Graffiti is the kind of art we encounter on the trains in the city on walls and almost anywhere and is done by spray paint bottles however many argue weather it is art or pure vandalism In this paper I will argue that graffiti is vandalism because it destroys property such as residential property it causes Chicagoans to pay taxes for repairs such as covering up unwanted graffiti and it encourages others to tag their gang name for ownership causing rivalry or possibly violence between communities and the boundaries between the communities For starters graffiti is vandalism because it is ruthless destruction Vandalism is the spoiling of anything beautiful and therefore I believe that graffiti artists should not just spoil beautiful property Allen Tyson a resident on the West Side argued against graffiti artist and that they are vandals After getting his garage vandalized not once but twice he stated I find it offensive to call these guys artistI dont think they deserve to be called artist when theyre destroying public property Whether the property has ownership or not I believe that it isnt acceptable for graffiti artists to draw on other property Almost all property has ownership and it isnt acceptable in my point of view to be vandalizing others property People have the right over their property and it wouldnt be acceptable to have others draw graffiti on owned property Having graffiti artist vandalize private property not only destroys others property but it leads to high repair costs Graffiti artists should be respectful to others property Its quite ignorant as well to paint or draw graffiti on public property others spent time to make those places look nice
