    lol. stuff like that is bad though because a lot of writers are honest artists and things like that give us all a bad name with society and all

    Alot of writers are honest artists sure....whos to say that guy wasn't

    Maybe that was his message, maybe it has meanings to it, for him, maybe it was political.

    Who are you to judge. And guess what, Writers and artists don't need any help in getting a bad rep........ITS ALL ACTS OF VANDALISM......writers/artists will never have a good rep it doesn't work like that, and would spoil the fun.

    ive got some awesome stuff from Toronto I'll post later. Particularly an alley one wall is painted in a nice nature seen, very classic art, and the other is full graffiti its amazing.

    Next time I'm on the subway with a camera, I'll be sure to grab some pics.
    Like Moots said, there's a lot in Toronto that's amazing.

    watch those videos ^^^ it shows you the differences between tagging and real graffiti. Also shown are ways in which you can get paid for doing murals for the community, that way your work will live on and be viewed in a positive light. There's some really nice work on there

    Putting paint on private property is illegal. Unless its your property, it isn't. I dont care if its your property, as long as if its PRIVATE property.

    Yes, CRIME. Graffiti is nice, if its done on maybe what a cardboard, on your property. But if you do it on a white van, fences, walls, that isn't your property, then it is a crime.

    Excuse my you giant wienerish n00b. Did it ever occur to you that councils make legal walls and places legal to paint on? Or have you ever heard of a canvas or a sketch book?

    i really should borrow a video camera to take on the train and record what is seen outside the window on some of the lines. there really is some impressive (and some not so impressive) graffiti around everywhere.
