Are you kidding me? You have no right to pass judgement on what is art and what is not. The fact that it is vandalism DOES NOT mean its not art. And your claiming only ghetto people write graffiti? You are so fucking ignorant it sickens me. Do some research before you start formulating your misinformed opinions.

Surveillance camaras are the best deterrent put them up high in plan sight. They dont even have to be real or work, but the real thing is best, if you can get the police to do something with the video other than make a report and file it. Alot of the people that are doing graffiti are involved in other criminal activity and should be look at very closely.
So,...What do you think that the taggers will paint FIRST??? The surveillance camera,...RIGHT???

WOW REALLY? UNDERCOVER COPS? CAMERAS? INTERESTING ARTWORK? LOOK YOU FOOLISH PEOPLE...I HAD A HOME OFF OF LINCOLN FOR 15 YEARS. WHEN I FIRST BOUGHT THE HOUSE THERE WAS ONE MEXICAN FAMILY IN THE AREA. WHEN I D-U-M-P-E-D- THE HOUSE THERE WAS ONE WHITE FAMILY IN THE AREA. IT WENT FROM A CALM SERENE NEIGHBORHOOD TO LOUD MUSIC, GRAFFITI, GROUPS HANGING OUT IN THE STREET ALL HOURS OF THE NIGHT, PILES OF GARBAGE FROM THESE FILTHY PIGS. I LOST $35,000.00 IN PROPERTY SALES BECAUSE OF THEIR LIFESTYLE. NOTHING PREDJUDICIAL JUST FACTUAL. THE FIRST SIGN OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD GOING BAD IS THE LOUD MUSIC THAT VIBRATES YOUR WINDOWS WHERE YOU CANT EVEN HEAR YOUR TV WHEN YOU ARE IN YOUR OWN HOME.I CALLED THE POLICE EVERY TIME THERE WAS LOUD MUSIC, OR PEOPLE LOITERING, OR LIGHTING OFF FIREWORKS. I CALLED THE ALDERMAN A FEW TIMES... EVERYONE START CALLING YOUR ALDERMAN AND DEMAND THAT SOMETHING BE DONE TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY VALUES. I THINK I WAS THE ONLY ONE CALLING AND THAT AND A BUCK-FIFTY WILL GET YOU A BUS RIDE ACROSS TOWN. YOU KNOW WHO YOUR NEIGHBOR PUNKS ARE WITH THE LOUD STEREOS. WHEN THEY PARK THEIR CAR AT NIGHT I SUGGEST YOU WAIT UNTIL THEY'RE ASLEEP AND DISABLE THEIR MACHINE.


You sound nuts, never the less, you do have a good point. After years of being an nicey nice liberal apologist for the "disadvantaged" non-white element of our society i have turned completely around. I no longer have any respect or sympathy for these people. I do not care what the percentage of these people commit these crimes. The one's who do not almost never report those who do. They're culture seems to almost glorify thuggery. I could honestly go for the rest of my life without eating another football sized burrito if these people would just simply move back to their homelands south of the border and I can drive through the near south side without the fear of getting carjacked or having my property destroyed.

I am an artist. I paint, draw, sketch, sculpt. I've sold paintings that I've displayed in galleries, coffee shops, and bars. I didn't spray paint my art on the side of someone's garage without their permission I display it in an environment where people choose to come in and view it. When art is forced upon people it seizes to be art. It becomes propaganda, vandalism or an urban pissing contest.

SERIOUSLY you think its not art?! Your the moron. Fags like you dont see that graffiti is expression. Its been in man kind since the cavemen. Its in our F*cking blood! who the H*ll cares about walls like seriously in 2020 these walls today are probably gana be knocked down and made into another walmart or something, So please see that us graffiti ARTIST should have the rights as americans to put our art work in the streets just like you guys have the right to put your bullsh*t advertisments in the streets! Stop with the boring bland blank walls and make art on them!-MASK

Just because you don't understand something doesn't mean that it's criminal or wrong. This whole thread is really funny. I agree these Graffiti ARTISTS shouldn't tag other peoples properties (props to the guy with the air rifle! Hahaha!) but then give them somewhere that they CAN express themselves!! Its worked in countless other cities. Check out the Graffiti park in Portland. Even Chicago! We are just so against anything that isn't typical "art". Why not stop complaining and start accepting that it's not going to go away. I say give them a concrete canvas and see what beauty can come from it!
