The people who practice graffiti are the new referents of a generation that no longer easily believes in politicians or government representatives. Graffiti, in addition to being a means of expression, could be said that it is a weapon that fights with our past. In addition, people think that Graffiti goes hand in hand with tattoos, with a style of clothing, with only one social class, however, the people who practice it can be from any social class, they are only people who express their feelings in a different way. way that is not well seen by society. Every day our city dawns more painted, the police will do something about it, I don’t think so, since the graffiti artists can avoid the police very easily, if they are caught, they never miss biting or running away.

Although the main objective of graffiti is the need to express something, the search for recognition, get out of anonymity, leave a mark on our passage through planet Earth. But graffiti in general is competition, it’s something that everyone is attracted to, they want to have more. “let’s see who paints more”, “let’s see who does it better”, “let’s see who paints in the highest place”. In Mexico, there are many people who like graffiti, but that graffiti has a special theme, something with more depth, not a simple doodle. There are people who prefer to agree to have the wall of their house painted.

It is clear that the design of a graffiti with its stylized forms and characteristics of a street art, which may seem strange to many eyes, but that is not why it is considered unpleasant to look at, since it attracts the visual attention of many. Those lines and strokes that take shapes with multiple colors who are the protagonists of fascinating designs on a wall, represent the second element that, at least in my opinion, attracts the attention of the observer. innumerable times I have found myself admiring the graffiti in the city with the intention of seeing which ones are better and also with the intention of learning by observing them to one day make one myself, since the way they are drawn is attractive to me , the colors, the expression, what this graffiti can transmit to me and transmit to me only with the way in which it is designed, since it is clear that the strokes contribute to a great extent to accentuate the traits of the author’s personality since what is interesting about graffiti it doesn’t end just in the way the lines compose it; the author’s psychological profile is also written in graffiti; This is because we can feel identified with the design and this is how graffiti begins to generate a deeper feeling of liking than the one that only aesthetics produces in us.

  1. I have seen how when people notice more graffiti they will probably assume that it is a less safe neighborhood. Graffiti is often used to park gang territory, so in that case it can often be a warning that you probably shouldn’t be alone there at night. The city of Riverside has included graffiti in their project to beautify it. They are paying graffiti artists to paint murals and express themselves on the sides of bodegas and warehouses. From my experience driving around the city recently, these murals are very uplifting and express who Riverside is as a city.

  2. I agree. I do really think graffiti is an art and that being able to express yourself in any way or form is really great. Obviously, sometimes when I see graffiti, it is pretty easy to know what is trying to be expressed. However, sometimes there are some pieces of art that are really thought-provoking and make me wonder what is trying to be said. And furthermore, when I see graffiti, I typically see it covering something hateful, so it is super interesting that this art covers something hurtful.

  3. The graffiti topic is interesting. It somehow always is associated with crime. Considering it being illegal in California, there are many around different buildings around downtown San Diego and even around La Jolla area. Most of them are just words and some are drawings. Personally I enjoy seeing the beautiful artworks around, not so much towards the letters or some explicit languages. I’ve also seen some cute graffiti to cover some not so pretty objects on the streets or something. Those ones bring me joy when I see them. I think there should be a limit of graffiti of what can be drawn and what can’t. And people can get permit of doing so. I think people would like to see some beautiful artworks around the city, adds a little scenery. But definitely not on private buildings.

  4. I think the topic of graffiti is an interesting one because I believe most people, despite their feelings about graffiti, tend to admire the artistry of some of it, at least occasionally. Typically, when I see graffiti, I began to think about who may have done it and what message they were trying to send.

    1. I agree with you! Whenever I see graffiti, I always wonder about the story behind it. Now, some graffiti is pretty obviously stated, but others make me stand there and think about what is trying to be expressed. I think it is a very good expression of oneself and one’s art, and I can totally understand that graffiti is art.

  5. As mentioned, the art firm of graffiti is very different compared to oil painting or acrylic or watercolor, Since graffiti is considered to the “normal” forms or art style, many people can view it as a disturbance or messy because people associate this with negative things such as gang life. I believe that graffiti expresses a sort of freedom that can’t be seen through the restraints of other art styles. This can also fall in ways that individuals live their life in everyday scenarios. The way that the liquid paint drips into other parts of the image can represent just how interconnected life can be in all aspects that are constantly there.
