Illegal Art or Vandalism?

Illegal art is always a hot topic and the cause of many a pub argument, is it urban graffiti art or is it simply vandalism?

These pics will probably sway you in one direction or the other.  But if you look at some of my previous posts you’ll see some incredible creativity from urban artists, street artists & graffiti artists from all around the world.  Even though I love pics like the ones in this post I realise they are not to everyone’s taste.  As a snap shot of a city I love them, defacing something, however illegal can be pretty fun.  I guess that’s the problem though, and the reason why so much illegal art will last the small amount of time it takes for a someone to remove it.

Born to proud but uneducated parents who named him Mister after the many famous Mr's in the world. Mister flourished until one day at school a cruel child noticed that his expression never changed and he wasn't blessed with pupils like everyone else. Forever ridiculed for his blank face, Mister ran away from home to a poor life on the streets where he learnt the ancient art of defacing public buildings.

    It can be all of the above. When it is done without permission, it is both vandalism and illegal. To deface another person’s property is disrespectful. A lot of street art is extremely well-done. It’s a great form of expression. But if some defaced the side of my building, I would be pissed. I would love to see graffiti incorporated into package design. Where each box is custom-tagged by a skilled graffiti artist.

    If it is illegal, it should remain illegal. That is the essence of street art. What previous landscape did your friggin’ building deface?

    I love it all with the exception of: on someone’s personal home fences and walls random acts of tagging are not cool. There are plenty of public walls in our hometown I would love to see urban art attacks happen …. even our council has allowed alley ways of concrete brightened up with some great murals and the like 🙂
