Beautiful Graffiti Art Murals
The Art of Graffiti
Graffiti started as a controversial art movement in the United States. In 1967, one of the first pioneers of graffiti tagging was a high school student named Cornbread. His reasoning for writing on walls was to grab attention and affections of a young lady. Eventually, other people started to take notice and take part in this defiant artistic exhibition.
If we look at history, people have always written on walls. Although some people view graffiti as beautiful works of art and self expression, others might consider it rebellious vandalism. However, graffiti murals have taken a front seat to gaining respect for an art that was once frowned upon. Graffiti is created to make political statements, to provoke thought and even to brighten places that have long been abandoned. Some people might consider graffiti art defacing property. The true artists at heart can recognize vandalism from pure raw talent. It takes not only a strategic plan to implement, but thoughtful designs to produce these masterfully intriguing pieces of art.
