Graffiti or murals they have become so common in North American cities, while they do make great subjects they tend to add to the neglect of areas.

@JoeB: I agree.

Amanda from Jersey City, United States

I'm a fan of graffiti art, and Detroit showcases some very talented artists. I agree that some is just garbage, but it can be very beautiful.

@Amanda: There are some very good artists here, doing both the street stuff and working in more traditional media.
