Graffiti artists choose to communicate in public places at the risk of offending and having their work removed. Obviously this is illegal and therefore branded as an act of vandalism, but if the work is skilful and easy on the eye is it such a crime? There are some ugly walls out there that definitely need a little bit of beauty. Unfortunately not all graffiti is visually pleasing, there are some out there who are disrespectful and artistically challenged.

Tagging; when a child scribbles on your freshly painted wall you certainly don’t feel impressed by it, this is probably how most owners feel when their property has been marked. But without tagging would graffiti have ever eventuated, it is most likely the first step on the road of becoming a graffiti artist.

Tagging was the birth of Graffiti as we know it – REKA
