Graffiti; an Ancient Art Form

Street art, or graffiti, has existed since the earliest recorded times, and examples of it can be found across the ancient world, including Egypt, Greece, and Rome.

One of the earliest known examples of graffiti can be found in the ancient Greek city of Ephesus, located in modern-day Turkey’s Aegean region.

Making a Statement With Street Art

Street art is primarily used for entertainment and to showcase the artist's talent. No matter where you are in the world, you are sure to see examples of it. However, it is becoming increasingly popular as a way of drawing attention to important issues.

One of the methods which could be employed is by changing the letters on a billboard, which would give the advertisement an entirely different meaning. This practice should not be encouraged as it is actually classed as criminal damage, and is therefore illegal. However, those who are passionate about a particular cause may see the risk of getting caught as a small price to pay.
