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.

In conclusion, I would like to say that we should not label or stereotype things or events. Abstractionism was treated in the same suspicious or even bad way but then it turned out to be among the best art and other masterpieces that cost a fortuneThus, I strongly believe that graffiti is a type of art that can bring people  a lot of pleasure.


In conclusionI would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight graffiti might seem as vandalism but in actual fact it is a sort of art since can bring the same emotions. Thus, I strongly believe that graffiti is a new type of art that is being gradually developed.
