    I like this section because we see the two visions about graffiti that currently exist.
    The graffiti can be vandalism for some people, but I personally consider it a way of expression. I must ask…why is there free speech now? Are we in a freer society nowadays?
    Art is used so that people see the political and social reality of the world.
    I totally agree with Banksy! Can anybody think he is not an artist?

    I like grafitti and I think it’s art too, but it’s true that in some places it should be prohibited because, there are some very ugly grafitti and they don’t make places look beautiful.
