Long lasting impressions


Is graffiti more than just a defacement of

property? Is it an art form? From the San Fernando Valley down to Los Angeles, graffiti is considered and looked at, as an art form in

certain places. Some local business owners said that graffiti artists ask for permission, in order to legally paint on these buildings. There seems to be an aesthetic

distinction between illegal tagging and the

artpainted legally in many different areas of Los Angeles County.
