Graffiti



I personally just don't like it, it looks messy, it doesn't make any sense and I just don't get it. I guess it's just a personal tag for 'rappers' etc. like the video explains.

Am I wrong to shut down someone that has been going on since the ancient greeks. Maybe I'm just seeing it at face value and not actually taking in all the different types and styles.




What do you think? Are you a fan?

LOVE IT, ANYONE WHO DOESN'T UNDERSTAND IT SHOULD STUDY IT MORE IF YOU LIKE THE ART AND CULTURE TING.

THAT PIECE THAT YOU HAVE GOT UP TO REPRESENT GRAFFITI DOES NOT JUSTIFY IT IN ANY SENSE AT ALL.
ON FACE VALUE I WOULD OF DEFFO' OF SAID THAT TOO.

FREAKY GUY FROM THE GOONIES GRAFFITI=BAD

i feel this is a bit naive! there is a lot more to this artform than meets the eye and most people will never get it. even when they think they understand, they really don't. you gotta be involved to really see what it is. but from an outsiders point of view you should be able to see that graffiti has done major things for the graphics/typography world. a lot of amazing designers started out doing 'rappers tags' haha
