"Partially possessed by Satan"?

thats the dumbest question i've ever heard, john. why do people do walk down the street? why do people do the breaking wind? why do people do the wearing of socks under their shoes? sometimes people just do stuff. what you should do is think about how dumb your question is and how its impossibly pointless to try to answer why people tag their names on things. grumble
Catherine Penfold-Waxman: 8th Nov 2005 - 21:23 GMT
I'd just like to point out that my weird out-of-context posting was in reply to someone ranting about graffiti being the work of satan, which has since been expunged.
My feeling is that graffiti is the very definition of what it is to be human, the desire to express yourself, to leave a mark, to tell the world what you're about, to have unity with other people in your tribe, to rebel against the norm, to have freedom of will.

and putting on a canvas and hiding it away or in a lame ass gallery where either no one can see it or only people who don't care isn't a waste?

nice...i lived in albuquerque a loooong time ago and it seems like there was a place there, like a huge, square, open pit below ground level banked up by walls [like a really big foundation] where people could go and do graffiti freely...is that still there/are some of these pictures taken there by any chance?

Concerned citizens of New Mexico: 12th Jan 2007 - 15:40 GMT
No one is saying that there can't be freedom of expression. But when someone tags on other people's property that just isn't right. If most of the people on this blog consider themselves graffiti artists, then do it in a more positive way. Like free walls or on canvas and make some money off of the talent. Because as far as I know all the unauthorized graffiti is not paying any green. You can hate on me all you want but until taggers own something of value and then have someone tag the shit out of it, only until then will taggers understand. Bottom line taggers need to grow up and be artists in a positive way!
Marty Chavez hates Children: 19th Jan 2007 - 06:15 GMT
First of all, who are the "Concerned citizens of New Mexico" to say Graff Artists don't own anything of Value? Moving on, tagging, is a totally different thing than most of the art above, which all required in-depth knowledge of depth perception, color-coordination, and lines of site, "Tagging" is a quick scrawl by an artist, often compared to asian calligraphy saying "I was here! I exist, I have style, I'm not happy with the current social state, and I am willing to risk being arrested/injured/sleepy tomorrow to show that I have a soul". What people like Marty Chavez and the "Concerned Citizens of New Mexico" seem to not realize is that graffiti has been ever-present on the walls of people as long as human minds have wanted to be remembered. Cave paintings-->"Graffito"(Roman citizens editorial of life in their state)-->Graffiti evolution and enlightenment in New York Subways--> graffiti today. If you want to stop graffiti, you have two alternatives,
Domino: 23rd Jan 2007 - 15:24 GMT
i live in burque and i know u need to throw those BREWTOWN tags up there or u havent seen albuquerques best
vern: 28th Jan 2007 - 20:06 GMT
What gives you the right to "express" yourself on a building or wall that I own? Is it okay with you if I paint your house or your car?
Pissed off tax paying citizen: 30th Jan 2007 - 21:42 GMT
I totally agree with the previous statement, so far no "taggers" have been able to justify that. How about they somehow buy a house and let all their little homies tag it! Then it would be authorized, oh wait a minute but then that would defeat the rush that they get by tagging illegaly. So that probably wouldn't work, because I think it would snow if they did something positive.
me: 5th Feb 2007 - 03:10 GMT
First off, let me start by saying: not everyone who (as pissed off tax paying citizen said) "tags", is a "homie". That is a poor stereotype. The artists that offer up their beautiful artwork for the world to view, can be called nothing short of inspirational if the work is tactfully done. Granted just scribbling initials somewhere is not "artwork", there are a lot of peices that are worthy of pulling over to the side of the road and admiring. Sure the artwork they put up is done without permission, but I would like to reitterate what a previous poster said and comment on if this artwork were hanging up in some gallery, the masses that pass by it everyday would not have the opportunity to gaze in awe at the constructive use of color, the complex lettering and the skill of the artists at their best. Get a better eye for expression and art. Stifle the artist, spoil the spontinaity. Go fill out a crossword and retire or something.
oneUnit: 9th Feb 2007 - 18:33 GMT
I just saw the acme yard for the first time the other day, every city needs a place like this, people are going to do graffiti, give them a spot (or 2 or 3) and illegal graff will diminish, not totally, but...

I am from Montreal, Quebec.
I am not a tagger, but I like graffiti. In my opinion, there's...let's say a "way" to do it. I totally agree with the fact that graffiti is an art. Those at the beginning of the page are MARVELOUS, honest! What I dislike is vandalism. The boundary can be thin, but it's still two different things.
Let's take a look at public transit services. Montreal's subway trains are going to be replaced by 2011. There's a rumor saying that the new cars are gonna be designed so people can do graffiti ON them, like NYC in the 80's. Graf artists could draw and write at will on these surfaces. The true artists, the talented, like you guys, would have a place to freely express your ideas, your magnificent capacities. I'm personnaly very excited, because I love and respect art in all of its forms.
Don't forget that you request a place in society, wich is a perfectly normal thing. But respect others as well.

ah, pissed off tax paying citizen, we meet with a battle of words once again...

BIG D: 11th Sep 2007 - 11:40 GMT
I miss the days of Jolt, Giant, Stack, 2zc, Two Face, Threat, Alone etc.... That to me was the renaissance of the Burque graff scene. I hope that the younger generation can bring some of that shit back with some kings of their own. Although there are still kings holding it down in the 505: Sofa, Rock , and all the other true writers I forgot.... big ups!!!!! Agree RIP

THIS IS A REVOLUTION!!!!: 5th May 2008 - 18:16 GMT
Well to everyone that feels that this id defacing property, it is. It is also a statement it is freedom of speech, it is speaking out about injustices expressing your right. Would you feel so much anger against say, the Boston Tea Party, of course not but how is this any different. If you hide your voice about what you feel strongly enough about that would risk so much as these artists than you are just as much at fault as those bombing your neighborhood. This is a revolution, this is not for nothing, this is a statement. Keep up the representing of Albuquerque. I've lived here my whole my life there is room for change stand up and speak out be the difference. Feel free to express yourself by any means at any cost this is a revolution!
Yet ANOTHER New Jack (not the ones above): 5th May 2008 - 20:39 GMT
A revolution of what? Speech? What are you trying to say? Its yahoo's like you who come up in places like here saying shit like that that makes all us graf writers look bad and like weird idealistic meatheads championing their own personal cause.
