Should graffiti be judged on the same level as modern art? Of course not: It’s way more important than that.
I don’t know why people are so keen to put the details of their private life in public; they forget that invisibility is a superpower.
Graffiti’s always been a temporary art form. You make your mark and then they scrub it off.
