Graffiti is a big problem that disturbs a lot of people- according to the police it is more common in rundown areas, but in some vandalism cases, there are "artists" that paint in brand-new places and the owners are the ones that have to clean it. Owners aren't afraid to press charges against graffiti artists.
In other countries there are places with legal walls to paint and for artists to practice, and sooner or later they will have to become common in the US, so that there is less vandalism.
Clean places are always better to practice this kind of art, so they improve and are able to create beautiful and amazing artwork. However, there are some graffiti artists that think that it is embarrassing to paint in the legal walls. Many times, artists like to be anonymous and have the attention focused on their works, not on the artists themselves. Other times there is really unique graffiti on those walls and most of the times they are compared by the people that work there or just go visit, which make some artists feel uncomfortable, and that is why they paint on other people's property.
Some people say that gangs use graffiti to mark their territory; many times they consider themselves "urban graffiti artists."
According to a New York Times article, "The police department says progress is being made but graffiti is a continuous a problem."
If property owners are victims of this kind of vandalism, they should report it to the police, the owners need to remove graffiti as soon as possible because it tends to invite more incidents.
There are companies of specialty cleaning and graffiti removal that provide the latest in special cleaning materials and expertise. They use chemicals but they have environmental methods.
We cannot forget that graffiti is a form of art loved by many people and that takes a lot of work and technique. A professional graffiti artist said on the website MisterW.com, " A lot of people say Graffiti is vandalism. So if I get paid to spray paint walls with Graffiti does that make me a... Professional Vandal?"
