Comment on the following statement:
| Some people think that graffiti is another form of expressing art whereas others consider it to be pure vandalism. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that graffiti is art, whereas others do not agree with this point of view. They consider it as something that spoils walls and mood.
I think that graffiti is another form of art. First of all, it can look really beautiful if it is painted by a talented artist. Second, usually it is drawn on horribly looking walls which can not be made to look worse. Graffiti is also a way for many young people to express themselves.
At the same time there are people who say that it is absolute vandalism and should be forbidden. Graffiti looks horrible and puts people into a bad state of mind!
In my opinion these people have a point. There are awfully looking graffiti that probably should be removed. Nevertheless, there are a lot of good looking graffiti that cheers up people. It can give you some thoughts to think of as well.
In conclusion I would like to say that we should not label or stereotype things or events. Graffiti is bad because it is graffiti. Abstractionism was treated the same way but then it turned out to be a part of world art with a lot of masterpieces that cast a fortune. I strongly believe that graffiti is a type of art that I almost always enjoy seeing.
