- Graffiti is an art, aside from the vandalistic roots. Anyone can do legal 'graffiti' style artwork, and with talent and practice, it is a beautiful art David, alike any other art style out there. Every style of art weather it be cave carvings or graffiti has merit as art.(9 votes)
- I'd love very much to get some more in-depth information about graffiti art, I think it is very interesting from a historical but also social perspective and an important insight in contemporary (urban?) culture.(1 vote)
- how can graffiti help you express yourself?(1 vote)
- Graffiti is the talent of wonder, it helps you be free from built up emotions and feelings of all types that makes you feel less as a person, it is a mind opener to others who see the inspiring natural art of people because it builds another person up to do the best of everything to experience life in a whole new matter of time, gazing at the free hand art of graffiti is amazing and i hope graffiti will never stop.(1 vote)
- Everybody has their own signature, their own direction. And when you ask any one here in this room to write their name, they're all gonna be very different. And some people probably will probably some calligraphy like, and that R starts to now sprout legs, such as thing, you know, dance. And then when it becomes radical, the R is right there and it just has a kick to it. And then Renaldi brings it to another level where it becomes so abstract it's still an R, but it becomes an animals, just morphs into a whole thing. And then when you add another letter to that, it just becomes this whole abstract war machine. It's pretty amazing. You know Taki would write like this, literally like this, crude, in 1970. And if he probably would have kept writing, he probably would have made that T like that and then the K and then the I and then it becomes more stylistic, more calligraphy, and it becomes more attractive, you know? So that's what we're doing, but we were actually not realizing creating this like really kind of like new language. (laughs)
