Day 2: something that’s illegal that you think should be legal

I think that graffiti should be legalised. I think that that way all the bland and kind of gross looking streets and allies would become more alive. Imagine a city with art built right in. So many artists are out there that don’t have a means to make a name for themselves, but if they could just go out and find a nice wall, they could bring it to life. Art is a very limited commodity. It’s supposed to disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed. Art is not conventional. It’s an extension of what’s in someone’s mind. It’s expression and freedom and rebellion all rolled into one. Graffiti’s not just idiots with a spray can. It’s a statement in the most individual way the world has ever known, and as far as I can tell, that individuality is what’s keeping it from being legalised.
