Graffiti… art or a crime?

Cultures have used graffiti as a way to express themselves for ages.  The word graffiti simply means–words or drawings scratched or scribbled on a wall and the word comes from the Greek term “graphein” (to write). Is graffiti –  art or a crime? You decide…

“Graffiti is revolutionary, in my opinion”, he says, “and any revolution might be considered a crime. People who are oppressed or suppressed need an outlet, so they write on walls—it’s free.” Terrance Lindall
