Graffiti started to appear in America around the late 1960's on walls and subways in New York. First used as a form of expression by political activists or by youth gangs to mark territory, it later became part of the hip hop culture and then the art world bubble. Spray paint pieces in public spaces are still regarded as vandalism.
