From StyleWeekly.com: Graffiti Artists 

Readers weighed in online about last week's story describing a new exhibit at Artspace Gallery (“The Writing on the Wall,” Arts & Culture):

“Graffiti art” ... no such thing. If a thug slashes your face, will you call it “switchblade art” and ask him to post photographs of it in a gallery? — Anonymous, Aug. 20, 9:49 a.m.

If art is in the eye of the beholder, I guess some people do not behold the proper eye to understand everything is art, including life itself. … [J]ust because something is not understood, does not mean it does not exist. Art on all levels and manifestations provides a key, or a door into something different, possibly something new maybe even a refresher of something old. Either way art brings life to the table. If you are not hungry, then by all means do not eat. — Art provokes thought, do YOU think!!, Aug. 22, 3:41 p.m.

These so-called artists are at their core common criminals. Most of them are artists like William Hung is a singer. Attention whores and common vandals, nothing more. Property crime is property crime, I don't care if you call yourself an artist. — Anonymous, Aug. 23, 10:52 a.m.
