While we may utopianize the idea of creative freedom and artistic expression, the graffiti which we see has nothing to do with those ideals.

Graffiti is meant as a way for certain groups to announce their presence and signal that presence that to other groups that share their sub-culture. It is also a signal meant to create fear and intimidation with the public.

This type of graffiti has nothing in common with guerilla gardening, as it is meant to tear apart law-abiding communities, not build them up.
