Some people regard graffiti as vandalism, others wonderful art work. I like graffiti from artists such as Banksy however I do dislike racist and mindless scrawls on buildings. What do you think?

If it looks nice to people other than the artist and it doesn't offend everyone in the world except the artist and a few of his friends, then, yeah, usually I don't mind it.

Like, if it's pointless and inappropriate, then, heck no, why would you do that? But if it's like Banksy (or however you spell his name... TT_TT) which makes a point, is pretty good, and doesn't offend every single person in existence, then I don't mind too much.

So, if it has a reason to be there other than to look cool, then I don't really mind it. I'm not saying I love it or I support it, but (as an artist myself) I do respect how skilled some people are with spray paint. 8I

Its really impressive. I've always wondered how they use the stencils.

I saw that in a movie once :D They basically tape a large piece of paper or plastic or whatever with a design on it over a building and just spray over it :3

But, yeah, I really admire the skills of some of the graffiti artists, as long as it's appropriate. It really adds color to some really dull places :3
