    If you have to come to an online forum to find a good reason to do graffiti then you shouldn't be doing it at all. That just shows how ignorant you are to the true spirit and drive behind graff.

    methinks if you feel like you need a good reason to give why you do it then possibly you shouldnt be doing it? i personally need no sort of validation.

    If you've seen the documentary Bomb It, they bring up a lot of good arguments defending graffiti. The biggest points they bring up revolve around the idea that the government claims they are reducing crime and increasing the quality of life by eliminating graffiti, but that's not really true at all. The question is -Who's quality of life? Do large boring gray walls improve anyone's quality of life? And vandalism, though it may be illegal, is such a small crime compared to all the other shit that is happening in the world. Graffiti seems to often serve as a way to bring a message to a large audience, and so yeah maybe you are vandalizing, but sometimes that's the only way to get your idea or concept out there. Graffiti communicates something of substance unlike all of the bombarding advertisements that our society can't escape for one second. All of these ugly billboards are what need to be painted over, in my opinion. One guy in the film said something like "taggers aren't selling anything, they only want to show they exist." Anyways, I can't give as good of an answer as the documentary does, but it's something like that.

    It was a good film. I watched it three times.

    I bomb because i hate the regualr media. advertisements are forced down my throat all day long, and it's impossible to hide from them. so fuck them, im going to advertise myself. Put something up on the walls without some shallow moneygrab ideology behind it.

    I do it because the rush you get while painting is one that is unmatched by anything else, and the feeling of seeing your work the next day, and the number of people that see that and think about it, notice it and notice you, yet it's an identity within an unknown identity. People know who legends are, but only by what they write. And the fact that so much can be done in one night, so close to others, but without detection, that's why I write.

    but really they buff graffiti, because it's contributed to the "broken window theory". Pretty much, streets look unlawful and whatnot with graffiti on them. It looks like a city where they don't care, think about it, do low crime areas have A SHIT TON OF GRAFFITI? No. Period. (if they do- they get buffed)

    The function of the police is social control, and protection of property.
    Not to fight crime.
    WORD, you can argue about how we're all going to be manipulated by the government or are the crazy theories you kids have. But we do graffiti, and it's going to get buffed sooner or later.
    Frankly, I'm just trying to live the happiest life I can while I'm on the side of this dirt. Let's face it, in 20 years you're going to regret what you didn't do, not what you did. We're all going to die, so go bombing.
