Those who draw graffiti are generally the street artist, the writer, often seen as a vandal who dirties the walls of cities. The fact is that there are few legal spaces where a writer can express himself, therefore the graffiti artist, even a good and established one, can only use every wall that is made available, perhaps in more popular neighborhoods, where the panorama can only be enhanced by a beautiful design.
Graffiti are similar to murals, that is the painting on the wall but they are mostly written.
A quick look at Wikipedia reveals that graffiti has existed since ancient Greece and the Roman Empire (and probably even before).
