I think that what the artists sometimes paint is art but Graffiti is not. The people who do it may be artists but they are slo putting a permanent mark in places when you could do it on a canvas. I think that doing it to make a statement is the only justifiable explanation for Graffiti but doing it to make a name for yourself is where teh social taboo comes in. So yes the paintings themselves are art but i do not consider the act of painting on a building without permission to be a very noble or even logical idea or art.
