Abstract
The focus of this piece is to analyze the features of graffiti art, consider the causes for the birth of it and support the idea that graffiti exemplifies counterculture art. Concentrating attention to the analytical views and exploring the major contributions of some of the worlds most recognized artists. The intent of this feature story is to portray graffiti art in a positive light. Graffiti is a hybrid art, the perfect adaptation from the outside artist. It has been governed largely through pushing boundaries within its genre to advance within its own rules. Although rules keep graffiti confined to certain avenues, distinct styles morph and intersect, guiding each genre into different directions. Through written exploration, appreciation and understanding, this look at outside art places graffiti back into mainstream artistic discussion and exploration.
