  • Both. They need to work with either the owner of the building or a representative of the city. There are plenty of buildings that are not in use that would be put to a good cause by making them beautiful as opposed to an eyesore.

    • I actually watched a youtube video with my favorite hip hop artist Immortal Technique and they were saying the same thing bro.

      Good. I hope they do it. Street art is so pretty, its a shame that they don't talk to city council in many cases.

    • I know right and the sad thing is most people dont relize it but in run down citys its used as anonymous political statments so it is very essental part of society.

  • Vandalism, but some can be art as well. It's just still vandalism.
    It's like taking a poop on someone's yard, you can't be like, "but heyy that poop is pretty!" No that doesn't make it okay.

  • Unfortunately any way you look at it wether it's a genuinely beautiful piece of art like in the picture or just someone's tag it's all an illegal way of destroying someone's property if done without permission.. also unfortunately all graffiti is looked in the same way due to all the shit people tag so it all gets a bad name

  • Poitry is painting a picture with word and griffiti is painting your soul with a can. Added to that most of the best political statements ever made were written in graffiti.

  • If it's like the ones in your pictures it's definitely art. If it's just some twat running around writing his name on stuff in the quickest and ugliest way possible it's vandalism.

  • For me it's art... without permission, it becomes illegal art, but still art... there's no aestheticism in vandalism, so I can't qualify street graffiti (as the ones pictured in the question) as that...

  • Vandalism. Doesn't matter how nice they are. If I build something, I wouldn't want to come back one day and see that one there. If I want it, I'll add it when I build it.

  • If someone drew on my wall without my permission yeah I'd be pissed. I don't care if it's the most beautiful and moving image. That ain't your wall.

  • If it's really good, it' interesting art. If it's bad, then that's about the level of the artist peeing on the wall.

  • Pure vandalism. No wonder degenerates who think not showering and smoking pot is a life style worthy of a human being.

  • Well most of these artists probably had permission to do so , so I'd say art. If they hadn't it would also be vandalism.

  • They shouldn't touch people's property. They remind me of anarchists and communists who don't recognize the concept of private property and thus freely violate it.

  • Art, the property isn't damaged in the traditional sense and for many people it's the best/easiest way of artistic expression.

  • I believe that they're just trying to show their feelings and they don't know how to reach out to ask for help

  • It can be beautiful art, but if the property owner did not give permission then even the most beautiful art work is just plain vandalism.

  • Both. You can do bad things with art. Depends on how you use it.

  • If permission is given it's ok.
    If no permission is granted it's a crime, no matter how nice.
