It seems to be art when it is on someone else's property, but grafitti when it is on MY property.
If it is marking up someone else's property without their permission, it is grafitti. It is just that simple. Public, temporary performance is something entirely different.
One man's art is another man's daughter paying for cocaine by stripping.
??? Last post was at 3:45?? Am thinking that all these posts are done on business time and then posters go home and have to be real with the spouse or kids. Geez, that is kind of sad - and weird. I would fire all of you if doing this on my company time.
I only like Orangutan Art. Gorillas are just a little too big and scary for me.
Graffiti can be nice and very artful. However, when its done on location were they have not received permission or it volates laws.. I don't care how nice looking it is, its vandalism and very disrespectful. Now if its like kids chalk on the sidewalk taht will fade away fast.. thats okay. But when you have adults doing it, even if its temporary, it is wrong. They are mature enough and understand laws and how to show respect for other peoples property. If its public then they should refrain from it because other people is putting their tax dollars into keeping the public place maintained.
After seening a pic of Jesus painted with poop onto a punching bag at the Warhol, man, anything can be art.
Perhaps you should be defining "guerilla art", but, yes it is graffiti but indeterminable levels
Can you not have temporary graffiti by using chalk? . A Nash is nice, but it is no Studebaker Lark.
Graffiti can be a beautiful form of art when it is done like this site shows:
The word graffiti comes from the Italian word sgraffito, and has become such an over used word that many people don't know what real graffiti actually is.
As pointed out above, it's not graffiti unless it's drawing. Vandalism is probably the word you want.
IMO, if it causes property damage it's vandalism. If it's something that can easily be undone, it's not. That still doesn't make it art, though.
So, if I get pissed off at some business or person, and decide to piss on thier door entry way, am I just expressing myself???????
Depends whether or not it is funded with tax dollars!
If it's done on your property, or with the permission of the owner, then it's whatever you'd like to call it. If it's done on someone else's property and without their permission, then it's graffiti and it is criminal behavior.
graffiti (noun) definition:
1. plural of graffito.
2. (used with a plural verb ) markings, as initials, slogans, or drawings, written, spray-painted, or sketched on a sidewalk, wall of a building or public restroom, or the like: These graffiti are evidence of the neighborhood's decline.
3. (used with a singular verb ) such markings as a whole or as constituting a particular group: Not much graffiti appears around here these days.
Since graffiti is writing it cannot be installed, performed, or attached as the title question asks, therefore guerilla art cannot be graffiti, unless you use a very liberal definition of the word "graffiti".
One man's art expression is another man's vandalism.
If it's a rusty car in someone's yard it is blight. If the same car is in a parade full of drunks drinking green beer . . .
One person's art is another person's scrap iron.
The distinction is arbitrary and meaningless. I would encourage all to abstain from voting in this poll.
If I like it, it's art. If I consider it lame, it's graffiti. Isn't that how everybody decides this?
