“Is graffiti art or vandalism? That word has a lot of negative connotations and alienates people, so no, I don’t like to use the word “art” at all ” Bansky said. In my opinion, graffiti is not art at all. I believe that graffiti is a form of vandalism.
Firstly, graffiti destroys some statues and cultural heritage. For example, in many countries when tourists want to visit historical sights they came across graffiti on walls and leave with the impression that this country has no laws or punishments and citizens who disrespect their civilization.
Secondly, graffiti on public buildings is not something pleasant. For instance, in many schools and universities people write and draw things that are inappropriate to express their views and beliefs. In addition, others vandalize public transport and even private properties just to get their message across.
On the contrary, other consider graffiti as something creative. The people who paint such things are thought to be talented and use this way to express their inner concerns. I strongly believe this is a dramatic way to accomplish something and if they have such a desire to paint they can do it inside their own home or even their own property.
To sum up, graffiti has to stop ruining public places and private ownership. Graffiti is not beneficial in our community.
