Graffiti is defined as the name for images or lettering scratched, scrawled, painted or marked in any manner on property. Graffiti may appear in the forms of simple written words to elaborate wall paintings. It is considered a crime of vandalism; many cities and business owners subscribe to using graffiti art in order to prevent vandalism.
