Crime vs. Art - Graffiti

November 22, 2012

This video is just a bunch of clips edited together to create a trippy video, but it shows how fast graffiti can go up and how it is always done by hoodlums. Does that make it crime just because that certain profile is doing the "art"?I always wondered if they just used paint brushes or if they had actual equipment; in this video they have long paint rollers that makes it look good. When is it considered art and when is it considered too far for art? Some graffiti looks cool, but just because it looks cool doesn't mean it is legal. If that were part of the law than you would have to define cool or everybody would get away with painting the town different colors. There really isn't a fine line that has to be crossed. It is considered crime to paint on any wall unless you have an owner's consent to paint his business. I think it is better this way because otherwise there would be too many loopholes for each individual case.
