The Graffiti Debate was a challenging discussion for me. Some of the objects I found, I did not believe were pieces of art. The 2009 Graffiti Mural Project used a lot of color with the musical instruments and the people. I think it is incredible. Lee Quinones seems to do pretty dark matter for his murals, but some of his other artwork, is not so dark. I agree that our instructor got us to think on a different level with some questions we might not have thought about. I agree with you that the best way to understand a person or their culture is by visual things they left behind for us to find. Have a great holiday,
Graffiti get painted everywhere, schools, homes, and even business buildings. It is destructive and takes time to get rid of. Graffiti can be stickers, paint, or even drawings that may be distracting into other people. To get rid of it you can paint over it yourself or get a company to paint over it.
“Although hundreds of thousands of individuals and groups promoting peace and justice now work across the world, the successes of the global peace network are rarely noticed.” (Wood) Additionally, the public who promote peace and justice are rarely noticed for their input to society. In the photograph titled, “Street Art with Graffiti in Copenhagen” by Shepard Fairey, follows the promotion of global peace and the protest against wars in the world. The image shows a painted mural, a former site of a youth culture center, on a seventy-foot-high wall with a dove in flight above the word "peace" and the figure "69". Also, at the bottom of the mural was graffiti painted over with "no peace" and "go home, Yankee hipster" by angry individuals, the youth culture center, who saw it as a propaganda provocation paid for by the city who tore down the youth culture center. Through Fairey’s photograph shows the importance of peace in the world. The photograph is hope that the public will follow with global peace. Fairey’s political mural is successful in conveying his
Have you ever wondered who painted the “Be Someone” graffiti located in front of the city of Houston? Well I have, every time that I pass by on US-59 in fact. These two simple words make me contemplate about myself as regards to who I am. The message to me provides inspiration to make something out of myself, be proud of who I am as to where I grew up, and to be able to give back to those who still live right here in the streets of Houston.
I believe graffiti is art because it takes a lot of time and skill to be able to do these kind of things especially when you're doing it with spray paint. You have to have a lot of experience to be able to do these extraordinary things. Not just anyone can go somewhere on the street with a can of spray-paint and just put a cool little tag. That does not make you and artist that just makes you a criminal. You have to have value behind it and you need to have something to back up your reason that you made this art its not just an everyday thing some people can do. You cant just wake up and want to be an artist it takes time.

Although the buildings in our school are being vandalized and tagged both public and private property is being destroyed. The members of the school board should hire someone to observe the school at night. Even Though graffiti is extraordinary to look at, it is illegal and doing it without the person 's permission is vandalism. The school should buy a advanced technology security system to monitor school property.
In the film Infamy, viewers see key conflicts between contemporary graffiti writers who consciously subvert the police and law enforcement efforts to remove graffiti. Firstly, the film illustrates that writers thwart police surveillance by choosing to tag in highly visible urban locations. Secondly, Infamy viewers understand that civilians have enforced the law by removing illegal graffiti from a variety of surfaces. Lastly, this documentary points out that regional differences in policing allowed graffiti to spread from the train yards and subway cars of New York to freight train cars further west. Although graffiti thrives because writers have confronted the police in New York and covered less-patrolled regions outside the city, civilians
Support: However, it becomes a crime when you put that "art" on someone else's property. “I have a message for the graffiti vandals out there - your freedom of expression ends where my property begins!” said BBC NEWS’ Peter Vallone Support: So we can fix this by trying to be more accepting of people’s art. In the U.S, we are pretty accepting even putting up spaces for people’s art.
Graffiti played an important part in the voting process in Pompeii and Herculaneum, it was how they “campaigned” and swayed others to vote for whomever they felt was fit to fill the position. In other words, electoral propaganda. The graffiti was present mostly on houses and shop buildings in the main streets where the majority of the populous would see it, therefore increasing the chances for votes in their favour.
Artist Andy Warhol once declared, “Art is anything you can get away with.” Street art has had a rough history with lots of controversy over the topic of being considered an art in the art world. Most people think graffiti is just silly and has little meaning. The style graffiti portrays makes it stick out from the rest of the art styles because it has creative lettering and abstract images that are painted on walls around the globe. Graffiti should be considered art because it has lots of popularity, it has a message, and it is very creative.

“No Trespassing.” It’s a message that we’ve all seen before, on street signs and on fences, but that most of us stopped considering as part of our daily lives. These signs just sort of blend into the background, no more noticeable than a crack in the sidewalk or a plain, solid-colored exterior wall. On the ordinary brown-painted brick backside of a bar in San Francisco’s Mission District, a bold, red No Trespassing sign is the center of a piece of thought-provoking street art. Below and to the right of the sign are some run-of-the-mill graffiti tags: pale yellow spray paint forming illegible words marking the territory of a gang or juvenile delinquent.
"There are historical preservation acts for architecture and perhaps for some murals, but also on the other hand, maybe it's lived its life and something else should take its place. " This quote was from the freeway company and it's just crazy that the freeway would throw away such art like that and rather not restore
Summer is a vast period of time in which days can become monotonous if the day have no activities to fill them. Plagued with the problem most students face during the middle of their summer, we set off on an adventure to capture pictures at some of Houston's famous graffiti walls. We decided it would be fun to go into town, but we had no idea where exactly we wanted to go. Houston, a vast city with countless activities, the polar opposite of our old town, Monroe, Louisiana, offers many opportunities for families to spend time together. In Monroe it took five minutes to get anywhere, and everyone knew the city like the back of their hand. In Houston there are so many places and so much to do, from Downtown to the Heights. Since this was our first summer break in Houston, it was hard to figure out how we were going to pass the time. Anisha suggested that we go to some graffiti walls and take pictures. She did that awhile back when our cousin was visiting and enjoyed it. Rahul and Jaya thought it was a smart idea, so with our car full of silly props, we embarked on our graffiti journey.
