BEYOND THE DOODLES: An analysis of graphite as a manifestation of urban art

Is it Vandalism?
Arguing without prejudice is the starting point for understanding, along with adolescents, this graphic form of contestation. We understand that it is possible to see under various points the "scribbling" of the spray.
The graffiti is considered a crime, according to Law No. 12,408 says that "graffiti is a crime that provides for punishment from three months to a year of imprisonment plus fine." If it is in monument or property listed, the minimum penalty is over for six months. However, Gustavo Lassala, master in Education, Art and History of Culture, says graffiti with "ch" can be any scrawl done on properties without authorization. The pixação or pixo with "x" names the practice done in São Paulo and recognized for having a "social dynamics established 30 years ago and a specific style, the tag straight, in sharp ways." "An approach to understanding it is to identify its relations with the reality of where we live and the social and economic invisibility of the population on the periphery," says Danilo Oliveira, a master of visual arts and curator of art urban He says that it is necessary to look at the aesthetics of pixo as an "experience of the senses", accompanied by cars, violence, pollution, people in the street, disuse of public spaces, all together. Graphite is an art that is based on drawings: all the letters and figures that are used in the painting are thought and elaborated, so that they represent what the artist wants to show.
