Urban Graffiti

Do you agree this is urban art? There are some very mixed opinions about this type of art. Lisbon has it’s artistic corner, but like most big cities, it has it’s bad graffiti examples. I find it interesting to see the decorative effect it has on the town and find it very agreeable when done in an artistic way. Here are two examples I can across while driving around town.

  1. I think it is art when it is drawn on a space set aside for the art. I do not think it is OK when graffiti is painted on someone else’s property without permission. I like the faces in the first photo.
