With lots and lots of practice you can learn to create graffiti art. Observe graffiti around your area, on buses, trains, construction sites, phone boxes, signs out the front …of buildings, most street signs, work places, fences, graffiti is everywhere.

The noun 'graffiti' is an Italian word for writing on public walls, a variation of graffio (a scratch or scribble), originating from the Greek graphein (to scratch, draw, … write). The singular form is graffito.
it is because in graffiti you also use color and it is a form because art can be on a canvas art is everywhere
around 75% of the population think that it is vandalism but other people like my self think it is art which the artist is trying to cooperate with his work and he is showi…ng his thoughts and feelings.
It depends on how you define art, and what graffiti you're talkingabout. Certainly there is graffiti out there that is amazinglydone, beautiful, and completely worthy of the i…dea of "art." Butthere is also graffiti out there that is nothing more than a simpletag which, depending on the person viewing it, doesn't really comeacross as art.
it shows how the creative minds of people changed over time. it also shows the different materials they used and it may even implicate the different reasons they were being re…bels, such as wars, rebellion, ect.
The difference between urban art and graffiti is that urban artists have permission from the owner of the object they are painting on this is legal. Graffiti is illegal becaus…e the person doing it does not have permission from the owner.
depends where you put it. if you put it on someones house or something that's vandalism, but some people have jobs making murals of graffiti =]

graffiti takes its name from Latin *graphīre to write . There are so many forms of it that just saying it is all graffiti is almost the same as saying any form of music is ju…st noise. Is graffiti art? i would argue that by its definition it is. As far as saying one is breaking the law and the other is artwork , i believe that falls upon local laws not in the name itself. All forms of graffiti are forms of expression and that is by definition art . so your answer is no there is no difference between graffiti and graffiti art
The eye of the beholder.
It is actually both, the two categories are not mutual exclusive. Depends on where it's being done. If you do it on your property, or somewhere where you've been allowed to …do it - then it's art. If you do it where you haven't been allowed to and where the owner of the property dont want it, then by definition it's vandalism.
In Criminal Law
Whenever you deface or devalue property that does not belong to you, then you are committing a form of vandalism or criminal mischief. This is illegal. Graffiti as an art st…yle is not illegal. You can airbrush graffiti on the back of people's jackets at their request all day long. Some businesses will actually pay to have graffiti style ads painted on their windows. The key is rather or not the art is wanted and permission given by the owner of the property in question.
In Art History
Graffiti has been around since men could draw on walls. Caves from 30,000 years ago often exhibit over endowed men and beautiful (by the standards of the time) women. It could… be argued that these were some of the first tags Modern graffiti art came from New York City in the late 1970's. Artists refined their techniques and use of spray paint to turn what was once a marker of territory into a true art form. Graffiti art has been recognized in the fine art world since the first graffiti-centered gallery opened in Rome in 1979. This exhibition introduced New York's underground scene to the world, and today graffiti artists are some of the most popular on the pop-art scene.
