Disturbing the peace, has always been a problem throughout cities in the United States.
Shaking society’s normal traditions by breaking rules with vandalism will always stir up controversies amongst the people.
By standard definition, graffiti means to spray illicitly on walls that are in private properties. “Vandals” as they are often referred to, are the ones keeping the culture alive in Houston as they express themselves through the power of a spray can.
Typically when driving down I-45 in downtown, they see the sign “Be Someone”, and that is why many graffiti artist leave their note behind — because they want to inform their society, their city that anyone can become someone greater in their life and a reminder that they can pursue their dreams.
This is the side of graffiti people don’t see, the side that it is in fact a form of art and each message that is sprayed on a wall has a bigger meaning than what the eye can see.
