JH community has a very narrow mind about Graffiti.
Graffiti artists are not taggers which are just Loooser.
We need to bring well done graffiti in the area, this is the only way to get rid of that Looooser.

One thing is graffiti as art , one is graffiti as vandalism , were talking about vandalism , not the type that is on display at 5points in LIC and no I am not in the older set or in the mindset of one in the JH community if that is to what you are referring to; I am going into my sophomore year of college. I was born and raised here and I care for my neighborhood not having vandalism all over the place , which in turn brings other negative aspects to JH. I appreciate graffiti as art , but not on the wall of my building or post office, because that is called vandalism.

I personally don't like graffiti or artwork as some call it on handball walls or on the sides of buildings.  I think it makes the neighborhood look trashy.

I like art , but I agree when it comes to "tagging" , it makes the neighborhood looks trashy.
But one can't make everyone happy. Many have tried to keep this neighborhood neat , where hundreds of cultures around the world coexist with the beauty of our tree lined streets and I want it to stay that way .

Wait wait, because JH is clean? LOL :2funny:
For me trashy is who does not pick up after their dog or who litter the streets.
No wonder why no artist come here and paint a serious graffiti how Bansky did in Williamsburg few years ago.
It’s easy to say I Like art.... but do it somewhere else.

Guess what, keep this neighborhood neat, I`m agree, You don’t deserve that great artist come here and leave their marks which eventually raise the value of the community and bring a touch of color.

Now I see why Artist community here is hopeless, don’t you worry I will leave soon.

So only danielrossi gets to decide what is good art and what should cover public spaces in JH?  Personally, I think "serious graffiti" has become a played-out cliche in NYC.  It was cutting edge in, what, like the '70's and early '80's?

well dont call it graffiti then call it tags

We all know what we're talking about here - the scrawled names or just plain nonsense that seem to be on every wall, mail box, security gate, window of our neighborhood.   O.K.  If it should be called "tags" instead of graffiti, so be it.  Nobody has invited the "tag" painter to so deface their property.  They have done it in spite of and to the detriment of the neighborhood.

If a business owner asks a particular artist to come and do a mural, I don't believe you would see the negative response that you deem so ""hopeless"-ly ignorant of artistic merit.

call 311 and make a graffiti complaint.  Building owner is responsible for either cleaning it up or giving city permission to remove.  The second you see it call and it will be removed as soon as the city gets around to it (maybe 1 month).
