Graffiti history to understand better what Wynwood is all about

Historically, Graffiti has either been viewed as an expressive or destructive act. Graffiti is the drawing, painting, scribbling or scratching of words or images into public or private property (so it is understandable that some people think it’s the work of vandals). Other people believe that it is a cathartic creation which displays an issue to the public. This is the distinguishing aspect of graffiti from other forms of art: it grabs people’s attention by simply being out in the open, implying that it is meant to be viewed and considered by the world. It is definitely art, even if it is illegally done. The legality of a creation does not dictate its status as “art.”
