Graffiti
« on: March 07, 2011, 02:09:22 pm »

Hello Haxed goers, long time....

Anyway, i was having this arguement with someone earlier today and i wondered what your thoughts were....

Graffiti - Art?? or Crime??

I say vandalism no matter how pretty or meaningful it may be, but others didn't think so. Freedom of expression and all that.

Discuss...?? :carlyschebbs

I like graffiti in all it's forms but i'd still probably class it as a crime (if it's on private property especially), but that's what gives it it's edge.

I genuinely like Teesside's contribution to the graffiti world too - does anyone remember "I LOVE YOU DWARF" in Norton or "MUCH HAS HAPPENED, LITTLE HAS CHANGED" in Stockton Town Centre? Wasn't there "FREE MANHEAD" for ages too? And there was that weird day when "[can't remember the name] IS A GRASS" appeared EVERYWHERE?! I also really like the stuff down allies or on bridges that say so-and-so is a slag or a virgin or whatever. I probably like the fancy "arty" graffiti the least to be honest. It's social commentary! Honest!

Hello Haxed goers, long time....


Alright Kidda!!! I agree it's a crime but some of it is decent, I prefer stencils and phrases over 'arty' type stuff although there is some cool stuff scribed on the EWS haulage trains parked up between Thornaby and Middlesbrough. On the other hand there's a proper shit bit of graffiti on the bridge near the riverside that's a robot I think and it just winds me up as it's a bit shit. If you're going to commit a crime in the name of art, at least make it good.

I heard you have a compilation of every good song ever done by anybody. Every great song by the Beach Boys. All the underground hits. All the Modern Lovers tracks. I heard you have a vinyl of every Niagra record on German import. I heard that you have a white label of every seminal Detroit techno hit - 1985, '86, '87. I heard that you have a CD compilation of every good '60s cut and another box set from the '70s.

it is a crime, but - cheesiest sentiment ever - it's no less of a crime than the arts council throwing money at people who can fill in the forms right and get paid a decent wage to do stuff that I don't particularly like.

my dad's got some photos from stockton in the 1980s, my favourite one is of the bread shop in stockton, the front of it is bricked up with only the sign showing, there's various bits of graffiti like MFC n that, then underneath is 'help the police, beat yourself up'. I like that. At the same time i was annoyed that someone did - in my opinion - shite graffiti all over the side of my house saying NEAT in crap letters.

hmm, it's interesting i think. It's strange to me to hear people say they prefer writing stuff to picture art too, i mean i don't mind the style of graffiti art, some of them are pretty impressive even, Banksy is the obvious example, but when its just your local group of chavs scrawling their names all over everything i hate it, and the so and so is a slag or whatever, i think it's tacky and totally vandalism. Not to mention the cost of cleaning graffiti in public areas, which is why i think the on the spot fines are appropriate for those cought in the act.

I'm all for 'art and 'expressing yourself' but why do they have to inflict it on the public in places like the town centre? why not buy a pen and paper? or do it on a wall in your own house?

This is still an ongoing discussion here so good to have your input so far. cheers guys xx
