Graffiti as Art
What is graffiti?
Today it is known as street art, but the
origins of ancient graffiti
date back to 30,000 BC cave paintings,
and the Greek & Roman empires.
Inscriptions and drawings were painted or scratched onto sculptures and walls.
What crime?
Historically, graffiti was not illegal; much of Europe still considers it art. Most of our western civilization regards it as vandalism.
Putting a 'name tag' on public areas.
This marking of territory dates back to the 1960's & 70's in Philadelphia and New York City.
