Writings on the wall
Graffiti is much more than random scribbling on the walls. From the 1960s onwards, when it started as a socio-political movement, it has evolved into an art form. Shoma Chatterjee looks at the history and evolution of the graffiti culture
Does graffiti deface the beauty of a city? Or is it an art unto itself? Wall art and wall writing is considered to be a form of art in the West. Graffiti is the act of inscribing or drawing on walls to send out a message to the masses.
