Why is Theodore so fat in that painting?

I don't like "tags", but graffiti art can be quite good. The Krog Street tunnel usually has some good work.

Graffitti is disgusting and backwards. Whoever did that obviously has artistic talent but doing so on public property is graffitti and ugly. To suggest otherwise is ignorant.

That's Krog Street Tunnell, and it is not a rip off of the taxpayers since it never get's cleaned up.

It is really not that serious people. As long as you don't do it why should you worry? i stay in Charleston South Carolina and we don't have as much griffiti on the buildings but I do think that Griffiti is something that takes time. So if Atlanta really wanted to end all the Griffiti then they must not want it that bad because, art work like that doesn't take place over night. Besides whats the harm?? Have a little fun.

"The harm" is that private and/or government is being defaced, aand thereby devalued. Maybe if these "artists" put their "time" into finding a job instead of spraying paint on the side of someone else's building, there'd be less problems in the world.

I'd ask if you'd find it to be OK if I came up to Charleston and sprayed some of this crap on the side of your house, but I'm sure you'd probably reply with "sure, go ahead"......

Sounds like your a member of one of these "artistic clubs".

They have jobs. Spraying graffiti is what they do on their time off.

Graffiti will never go away. No matter what. No point in getting worked up over it.
