Does it matter if its art, graffiti or whatever other term that you want to use to describe it. Whether it's good or bad in the eyes of the beholder, It's something painted/daubed where it shouldn't be, so let's get back to the origins of this thread.
Yes. It does matter. Is it hard to grasp that this thread is about vandalism and there is a huge body of work that isn't classed as vandalism but is called graffiti art ?
Case in point. Is this vandalism? Is it art? Is it graffiti? Is it a mural? Whether you like the art or agree with the water tower being painted it falls in a very distinct category to the awful vandalism in the story being discussed
