Graffiti IS:

Youth Expression and Rebellion – a mode of self-expression, a creative and defiant act (it is still illegal, you know) fused into one… the universal lingua franca of urban youth

A modernity and relevance cue - a cultural meme appropriated by purveyors of upscale culture to broadcast their “cool” and affiliate themselves with urban street cred

An act of civil disobedience – a marking symbolizing disengagement from good public conduct, an expression of discord

If you are in the business of consumption and culture, this idea has various dimensions and implications.  THAT’S the story we will tell.
