    Graffiti is difficult, on a nice building or where it is just a hastily scrawled swear word or name it is terrible, however on a concrete monstrosity such as a motorway bridge, or where it has been well done, it can be pleasing. After all some graffiti has great artistic merit and it can enhance the area, my town held a graffiti contest on a building due for demolition, some of it was so good it would have been nice to see it kept. equally toilet graffiti in pubs/clubs is often humerus and wastes time perfectly! So I would say it depends where it is and how well it is done, as a general rule I don't like it but there are exceptions.

    This entire wretched island that I live on is covered in the graffiti of the local Asian gangs. Pretty much that only areas that are not defaced are the military installations where I live and work. It has made what has the potential to be a beautiful island into one big ghetto.

    I like some graffiti that brightens up an urban core and gives it a little bit of new life. Gang graffiti and sh!tty little tags can go away though.

    80% of the Graffiti that has recently been sprayed on the walls of buildings in my hometown of Innsbruck reads either "Antifa" or "NPI" (the left-wing football fans). I think I don't have to say much about that.

    In the right environment, it can be pleasing to the eye, especially if thoughtful ... however, very few environments are the right ones, and those buildings that could merit a redecoration rarely receive a graffiti, instead it is nice, old buildings of outstanding beauty that get smeared on, and often in little taste...
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Because too many European kids want to play American ghetto circa 1978. What really puzzled me were old central european local trains - of possible austro-hungarian vintage - painted up like NYC subway cars back in the day.

    It defiles most buildings, but I don't mind if it's on some abandoned and neglected buildings, in some cases it's their main characteristic.

    I dont like it, but some political or critical graffiti can be good, depends on which buildings they are on.

    I dislike Graffitis generally. It´s a harm of foreign property and it´s no kind of "art" I like, too.

    Graffiti is mostly produced by malcontent teenagers who should know better. Sure, it brightens up the crummiest buildings in the crappy areas, but the reason those areas are crappy in the first place is because the people who live there produce kids who like to... spray graffiti.

    Like other People here said, it depends. It could be Art or anti-Art. I absolutely hate it when teenagers spray propagandistic Things or Music Logos on nice Buildings. But if it's done in a different Environment, like abandoned Buildings can be interesting to look at. For Example, I think the graffitti on the Berlin Wall are very interesting.
