Some people claim that graffiti is vandalism, while others argue that graffiti is a special art form that should be admired. In this essay, I will try to look upon this issue.
From my point of view, graffiti should not be respected, because it cannot be considered as art. Firstly, obscene words and senseless pictures are disgusting and disrespectful. Secondly, graffiti usually spoil monuments, memorial walls, tombstones, metro carriages… And the last but not the least is that graffiti is not agreed with the city government or with building owners, that is the cause why graffiti artists are punished by law.
That is why I believe that graffiti is more vandalism than art and I cannot admit it.
However, some people believe that such “artworks” should be seen with fascination. They support their opinion by the fact that graffiti is the great way of self-expression that conveys the important massage or explains something to the people. Besides, graffiti can make deserted houses and fences look more vivid. These arguments make people think that graffiti is a modern art form.
Nevertheless, I do not agree with these arguments because they are not convincing for me. This is exactly owing to my belief that graffiti is just not the right way of self-realization that results in spoiled surrounding infrastructure.
In conclusion, I would like to state that graffiti is more like vandal action deed than a piece of art and it should not be promoted or admired. Therefore, I vote against it.
