Welcome! This site is dedicated to looking further into the issue of graffiti as a criminal act vs graffiti as a form of art. This website will take you through the early history of graffiti into modern times. We will look at the criminalization of graffiti throughout the years, particularly from the modern era of graffiti, generally considered the late 1960s to present day.
