Graffiti, whether ugly, pointless or beautiful, is an art-form and a voice calling out from society. It will always tell us something about the world and illustrate an emotion, whether it be boredom, injustice, frustration or love. It is the people’s art and we must take notice of it; it is just as valid as a Damian Hirst or Georgia O’Keefe – it is one person’s view. Next time you see graffiti, absorb it, just like you would a masterpiece at a gallery – you may be surprised about what you might see within!
It is just one person using the means they have to put their mark on the world.
