I would say it is illegal art most of the time. Definitely an art. But often abused for wrong purposes.

In some cases in my city artists are invited to decorate temporary walls (or walls about to be demolished) or fences.




(not sure if this is graffiti, but it sure looks cool)

This block will be demolished soon for a new tower project:

Graffiti can be very beautiful when done properly, but emptying a spray can on someone else's property just to be a c8nt definitely is not acceptable.

If it's challenging ideas about what art is or moving the boundaries, it probably does sit on the art continuum. Especially if it's related to other established art forms.

There's definitelty a difference between tags, vandalism or splashes of colour and paint, and creative graffiti. Value is given to art by art buyers unfortunately. They decide if something can have value attached to it to make them and others money. Its a revolting, money printing industry

This is the last stunning work of Jorit in Naples, just a few days and it will be over.
Surely most of you know who the subject is.





EDIT: it is completed, now.

The last one is really art. Unfortunately often graffity turns to some purposeless scribble that just uglify the city.

Here are some examples in Honolulu. A handful of building owners in Hawaii who own mainly warehouses and commercial buildings have allowed graffiti to be placed on the wall. Most of the action is in Kakaako. Here are some examples.
