Graffiti means many things for different people. Some people associate graffiti with vandalism and the destruction of property. Others see graffiti as art. Currently, the word ‘graffiti' is used to describe everything from scribbles on bathroom walls and scratched names on bus windows to gang tags and graffiti-influenced paint on canvas.
However, when people refer to ‘graffiti art,' they are usually taking about a specific type of graffiti. Also called hip-hop graffiti or New York-style graffiti, graffiti art is closely linked with hip-hop culture and the production of elaborately designed and highly stylized tags, throw-ups, and pieces.
