Graffiti is the act of drawing or writing on a surface, typically in public.
Graffiti artwork ranges from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings and has existed since ancient times. It can be found almost anywhere, but is most often found in places like streets, bathrooms, and subways.
The artform has many purposes:
– to mark territory or ownership
– to spread messages for others to see
– as an artistic expression of oneself
– for advertising purposes such as companies using graffiti art in their logos,
– and sometimes even just for fun.
Graffiti is usually done with spray paint or markers on public surfaces like walls but can also be done onto other surfaces such as signs and trains.
The type of surface graffiti will be drawn on indicates what kind it is- whether it’s a quick tag that takes little time or effort (usually seen on smaller surfaces), a piece that’s more thought out (usually seen when there’s more room), or finally a mural which takes much longer due to the size/area covered by the artwork.

One of the most famous graffiti artists in the world is Banksy.
Banksy, a British graffiti artist and political activist, is known for his satirical street art and subversive epigrams.
Born in Bristol in 1974 as Robin Banks, he took up the name “Banksy” in the 1990s and was one of the pioneers of graffiti art on Council-owned public property. As a result he has been widely criticized by some commentators while others have praised his work as imaginative and complex.
Police have strong evidence that Banksy is Robert Del Naja, member of Massive Attack.
Banksy is most famous for his paintings which often include rats, apes or other animals done with humorous captions that are usually satirical in nature. In 2008 he made an artwork about Guantanamo Bay prison by painting orange life preserver rings around six metal military landing craft near Great Yarmouth which were meant to be an ironic comment about refugees drowning at sea attempting to escape war zones or oppression from their home countries; it came under heavy fire from locals who felt that it was disrespectful to those who had lost their lives fighting for Britain’s freedom.
