Topic: Is Graffiti A Form of Art or A Public Eyesore?

General Purpose: To persuade.

Specific Purpose: To persuade the audience that graffiti is a form of art, not a act of


Central Idea: Graffiti is an urban form of art produced by quality artisitc textures by street

art professionals, not a vandals form of releasing their inner anger and



1. Graffiti are writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or painted,
typically illicitly, on a wall or other surface, often within public view.

2. Graffiti range from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and they have
existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Egypt, Ancient
Greece, and the Roman Empire.

3. In modern times, spray paint and marker pens have become the most commonly used
graffiti materials.

4. In most countries, marking or painting property without the property owner's

permission is considered defacement and vandalism, which is a punishable crime.

5. Graffiti may also express underlying social and political messages and a whole genre
of artistic expression is based upon spray paint graffiti styles.

6. Within hip hop culture, graffiti have evolved alongside hip hop music, b-boying, and
other elements.

7. Unrelated to hip-hop graffiti, gangs use their own form of graffiti to mark territory or
to serve as an indicator of gang-related activities.

8. This issue has caused grafitti to be labeled as an illicit and illegal form of art in many
countries as it has been generalised to be related to gangsterisme activities.

9. In Malaysia, graffiti is sometimes a misunderstood art form, but it’s what makes art so
accessible and gives the cities in Malaysia its special character.

10. Nowadays, no matter what city you go to anywhere in the world, there’s bound to be
murals and graffiti scattered around as it is growing to be recognised as a dominantly
loved art form globally.

(Transitions: Firstly, I would explain about why grafitti has been associated with


1. Graffiti is often deemed to be a form of vandalisme rather then an art.

 Street art is more a visual art form than random graffiti, contingent to the
motive behind the artist’s work.

 It creates a wide array of different reactions among the audience, and thus a
relationship between the artist and the community through its expression of
self and culture.

 The negative status of street art is mainly due to the gang signs and tags that
make up nearly 95% of all “street art”, or more specifically, graffiti.

 This in turn raises concerns that urban children will be corrupted by the display
of gang culture visible virtually anywhere in the streets, eventually resulting in
a dramatic increase in crime and violence in those parts of the city.

 If one does not have permission to spray graffiti , it is illegal.

 However, if one has obtained the permission, graffiti is not illegal.

 This is the way that graffiti perception works in most places around the world.

 The main reason graffiti has obtained a bad impression is because the word
'Graffiti' has been associated with many ambiguous meanings.

(Transitions: Next, I will explain why I think grafitti is a form of art rather than a result of
a vandals ploy)

2. Graffiti promotes diversity.

 Street art is diverse from every way you look at it.
 There’s so many types of street art, from paste-ups to murals; stencils to tag
and so many more.
 There are street artists in nearly every country in the world who are influenced
and inspired by a multitude of cultures and styles, resulting in a wide and
expansive body of urban art that can be found all over the world.
 New pieces pop up by the seco as other pieces get removed or erased.
 Not only that but there really are no limits on what an artist can put in the

(Transitions: Thirdly, graffiti also plays a hand in questioning political issues)

3. Graffiti has an upper hand in promoting political statements.

 Graffiti and street art has always had a history of being influenced by the
present political and social issues.
 A lot of people have painted and pasted on the walls and buildings in their
cities as a form of anonymous political protest.
 Recent political issues in Malaysia has also played an important part to make
graffiti popular in Malaysia.
 Political statements have typically been controversial; scrawled illegally and
boldly in various countries and for various reasons.
 When people feel they have no power or influence but want to express their
anger, hatred or defiance towards political injustice, this kind of art happens.

(Transitions: Lastly, I would discuss about graffiti’s effect in our society’s daily lives.)

4. Simple Equation: Painted Streets + Colourful World = Happier Life.

 Graffiti art in the street makes people happy.
 It makes their day and their commute more interesting.
 It adds character to what would otherwise just be grey and boring.
 Graffiti reminds people to feel alive.
 It wakes people up, inspires and motivates the society.
 Sometimes, it can make people think.
 Street art takes the ‘normal’ and makes it a thousand times more interesting.


1. Graffiti is a modern and growing art form that will inspire future generations.
2. In my view it has given the streets of our cities more colour, vibrancy and personality
as well as hidden thought and irony.
3. The world can be a much better place if we all came together and joined as one;
graffiti is helping us to do that.
4. Graffiti allows the artist to show their personality and thoughts that is why I feel it is
so inspiring; people open up in art and often portray their emotions and feelings within
5. Older generations may feel the opposite about it and believe graffiti is ruining our
culture when in fact graffiti is creating our modern street culture and shaping our
6. A lot of people never use their initiative because no-one told them to.
