What do people think of when they see graffiti? Is it art, vandalism, or could it be both. Graffiti is a relatively new and developing art form that presents a lot of controversy due to its involvement of illegality. A lot of people see graffiti and instantly label it as vandalism and not an art form; however, by legal definition that’s not always the case. According to Oxford Dictionaries, art is defined as “The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination…producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.” Therefore, graffiti is and should be recognized and appreciated as an art form and accepted by the art community.
