Persuasive Essay on Graffiti

| February 25, 2016

Graffiti looks like art but it is vandalism.  Vandalism means that the artwork is done illegally on other people’s property.  It is used to express a person’s feeling in a negative way about the world.

Graffiti is considered vandalism mainly because it is done on other people’s property illegally.  Art is done on property with the owner’s permission, such as a mural or on a canvas or paper.  Graffiti is done on highways, freeways, bottoms of bridges, overpasses, public and private buildings, and other places in which the owner of the property has not given any permission.

Also, good art earns money, but graffiti loses money.  Did you know that graffiti (considered vandalism) costs billions of dollars to remove?  Most taxes go toward supplies for graffiti removal.  For example, Chicago used $6.5 million, and Nebraska used $100,000!

Grafitti is vandalism, not art.  It expresses negative thoughts.  People can prevent it, or just let the government know so that they can make a law that if the person is doing graffiti, they go to jail and they have to pay the money so the people clean it up.
