The art of graffiti has been portrayed for generations, with exquisite artworks displayed in public spaces, ranging from buildings, walls, or any other prominent surfaces. Graffiti is much like other forms of art, that involve drawing, painting, or sculpting, and typically one who forms such types of art strives to make their artwork accessible to the general public. Individuals who frequently practice graffiti are generally adolescents or in their early twenties, which justifies their restricted access to resources for advertising their art, leading them to rely on graffiti to display and promote their artwork. What differentiates graffiti from other forms of art is that it is a crime, most notably vandalism. Whereas one may be aware that vandalism can result in prison time and a substantial penalty, individuals continue to practice such acts. Graffiti is an artistic expression that has combined the struggle between art and crime, where graffiti can offer a creator the artistic freedom to publicize their work, yet it continues to damage public property, making it an illegal act.
