You are destroying property values.
It is vandalism, though writers consider it art (well, usually - not so much gangs!). So, if you're doing some graf on something that doesn't belong to you, it's bad. Go crazy on your own property.
It's punished by a fine and/or community service, and if you're an adult, possibly jail time. It all depends on where you're located. Most of the time you'll get a fine and community service, I think, because they want to make sure you've learned, and it does cost money to repair damage.
Graffiti is a type of drawing that you find mostly outside. Graffiti is illegal and i recommend that you do not do graffiti. Sometimes you may see people do graffiti but they have a permit to do it and they are getting paid for it
Googling "graffiti arrests" returns nearly half a million hits. "Felony graffiti" (graffiti that costs more than $500 to clean up) returns nearly 200,000 hits. It is definitely illegal; the charge is vandalism.
Graffiti is illegal to varying degrees in the United States. The FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program says graffiti is vandalism and there have been laws made about the act for decades depending on where one lives.

Yes. Graffiti can be seen as a display of public art though in some instances it is illegal. Banksy is considered a graffiti artist. He creates social commentary while tagging the city. There is a difference though, between gang graffiti and art graffiti. http://www.banksy.co.uk/
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 because the person doing it does not have permission from the owner.
Lot of people think that graffiti=gangs. Suburban people get scared when they see one, but chances are that it's the neighborhood kid who saw graffiti on the internet and now wants to do it. Artistic graffiti however seams to please everyone's eye. ...and it's illegal.
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 style 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.
Yes it is a bad thing, because it is often illegal, vulgar and rude.

it is not illegal to draw on the street or side walk with chalk because it is washable. It is not like graffiti. Graffiti is permanent and people do it on private property. Chalk is made for kids and it does no harm. I did not want to change the answer, but I did want to say that PEOPLE ARE BEING ARRESTED IN AUSTIN, TX TODAY FOR "CHALKING ".
Yes, the statue is usually damage to public or private property. At least it is in my state statues. Of course graffiti is illegal,because if you dont have permission to spray words on a wall or a house and a police sees you then of course it is illegal.
In the United Kingdom, graffiti is illegal unless it has been properly organised by schools, youth groups etc. I'm not sure about other parts of Europe.It all depends on where they do it. On other ppls walls, no.
