I am intending on exploring whether graffiti is art or vandalism.
By exploring this research topic I will be breaking it down into different sections.
According to Colin Ward (1990) “The vandalism of the last centaury becomes today’s tourist attraction” (Discussion Paper on Vandalism and Graffiti, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, London, 18 June, 1-10).
What he means by this is that, the vandalism that had happened in the past will be a historic moment and some people may agree.
The disliking of the writing on the walls by ordinary people has allowed for anti-graffiti laws to be created by politicians with little fuss and usually with the public’s support.
In turn, the creators of the writing have become outlaws, simply because of the criminalization of the public act of getting up their names and messages.
