Graffiti: Art or Vandalism?

Graffiti vandalism

Graffiti is defined as "writing or drawings made on a wall or other surface, usually without permission and within public view." Graffiti ranges from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and has existed since ancient times, dating back to ancient Egypt, Greece, and the Roman Empire. Graffiti is a controversial subject and defacing or painting property without permission is considered by civic authorities as vandalism and property damage, which is a punishable crime. While at the same time graffiti has evolved into an art form and a form of self expression that some proponents of the 1st Amendment defend vigorously. Graffiti became a growing issue for many American cities in the 1960's, spreading from the New York City subway system in the early 1970s to the rest of the United States and the rest of the world rapidly.

The most common type of graffiti is done by "taggers," who use spray paint, and sometimes stencils, to "tag" public structures with their initials, logos, nicknames, or tags. Graffiti can be creative and beautiful, but spray paint can be used for hurtful and malicious purposes as well, and when it's on your property, you're the only judge of whether it's art or vandalism.

You control everything on your property, including graffiti, so if you want graffiti gone, call the graffiti removal specialists at Have Faith Pressure Washer Services, LLC.

Transforming Graffiti Defaced Surfaces Into Pristine Blank Canvases Is Its Own Art Form

We call pressure washing, "reverse art," creating a like-new looking blank canvas from an unwanted work of spray paint vandalism. We believe that exterior cleaning is an art, greatly aided by science. Scientific advancements in pressure washing, soft washing and eco-friendly cleaning solutions are our palettes, paints, and brushes, but there's a definite art in the attention-to-detail, focus, and patience required to perfectly clean an exterior surface; square inch by square inch.
