Graffiti is writing or drawings scribbles, scratched or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place. Graffiti is considered vandalism, a crime, a nuisance and for these reasons has always been the underdog of the art world.
Although graffiti has been viewed negatively, it is important to recognize the impact it made on New York City culture. This video focuses on what is considered to be the world’s graffiti mecca, 5 Pointz.
The video contains pictures, music, and is tied together with a poem.
