Is graffiti real art? Is street art “ghetto”, illegal, ugly? Graffiti is one of the most controversial forms of expression in the world, a type of modern art that imposes itself little by little.
In my opinion, spray paint did not start as an art, but in the recent years, we could witness graffiti growing, improving and becoming more and more diverse. It develops, it is aestetically appealing and demands great skills and talent from the street artist. Some will not agree with me. While most of the people consider graffiti truly amazing, creative and original, others see it as damaging, as it ruins walls, fences and means of transportation every day. The question is: Does it really ruin it, or does it offer personality to a boring wall?
