Hi, I am looking for a graffiti writer to paint one side of my daughter's room. I reside in Stockbridge, Ga. Please email me and I will submit a pic of what she would like.

Thanks.

My question to Brian3219 is this: where do you live? Do you own or rent? If you rent an appartment in Roswell I understand how you can view this as some sort of "urban art" I live off Dekalb Ave, where I actually OWN a house that have been defaced by this "art" in the past. Some graffiti can be viewed as art, but 90% is done by idiots with zero artistic talent. I agree that it does add a layer of urbanism to Atlanta, but what pisses me off is when these children deface personal property, bolth commercial and residental.

Here's a pretty good documentary on graffiti art from around the world with interviews if anyone's interested.

Here's the deal, graffiti is an art, no doubt. There are alot of artists who get big after bombing the streets for years and then become canvas art ****, no doubt. In the end, the graffiti that everyone on this thread is complaining about, is the graffiti that will never end. You cannot stop us. These acts of vandalism are what they are. But behind the label of vandalism, there is an extreme competition that will never end. The bigger, better, high and more outrageous earns the writer more respect. Its perpeutal, there will always be some kid who wants to man up and write on a wall. ****, it might just be your kid.


If you can't understand our lifestyle and our culture then don't argue, its like an athiest and a christian arguing existence. We won't see eye to eye. If you want to try and stop us, do it. Buff my ****, I'll be back the next day or the next week, bigger, bader and "more of an annoyance to your precious status quo". If you really think your the man, stop me in the act. Meet me in my element and you'll see what street justice is about.

The thing that seems different about graffiiti as compared to other art is that it's performed on someone else's canvas without their permission.

Are graffiti artists cool with the idea that anybody can come along an hour later and paint over their work, or is that considered an act of vandalism?

Hard to see eye to eye with a vandal. It is not your views but your actions that speak for you.

The less you write, the less you damage yourself. Not like that is possible but i dont expect you to understand

Sure its still vandalism, just vandalism on top of more vandalism. Thats one thing that makes this so fun. Writers vs writers vs. cops vs. cabbage town vigilantes. If someone goes over me once, I destroy everything they got out. If it comes down to it I'll fight them. Its a matter of respect remember graffiti is an expression of hip-hop and hip-hop got rules.

@ cityrover: My actions, what actions of mine have you seen? You don't know my name or what i do. Furthermore I don't damage myself at all, rather I boost my own ego, so to speak. By doing graffiti autonomously, without the boundaries of society holding me back, I find confidence and power though my own actions. How one acheives this happiness is for their own.

haha graffiti philosophy 101.

Why would you care if someone paints over your stuff an hour later? Are you saying you have some kind of ownership in your stuff? Or the right to have it left alone by others?
