"Graffiti" An unauthorised
attack on building, property or other object, normally by (aerosol) painting
that target. Those that persist in the illegal practice of graffiti will
mark their presence with a picture, word(s), symbols or other marking. Graffiti
can instill fear and concern for some individuals when they view an example.
Interpretation of graffiti varies from crime to 'art', but for those unwilling victims of graffiti it can be a very expensive exercise to undo and remove paint or restore property to its previous condition. The practice of graffiti is often associated with criminal damage and other unwanted behaviour in local communities.
