When you get paid, is it still Graffiti? When I travel I like to photograph examples of graffiti.Here a person is marking a blank white wall with spray paint…. …through stencils.Is this graffiti or art? I guess it is art because it is on the right hand wall leading up to this building in Toronto ON. A group of graffiti artists was commissioned to tag an alley in Fredericton, NB.They were paid so is it art? This woman is paid to paint over graffiti. Her work clothes speak like art does.
