That's not graffiti; that's muralism. Graffiti is disrespectful vandalism that drags neighborhoods down.

I was going to call it street art but do agree with you. There is definite difference between what we are seeing here and graffiti.

Haha, didn't see that argument coming.

Anyhow, you are probably right in that these are not graffiti - the defining point of which seems to be whether the art/work is authorized or not and these likely are/were.

Websters: "usually unauthorized writing or drawing on a public surface"
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/graffiti

Oxford: "Writing or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place."
https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/graffiti

Wikipedia: "Graffiti (plural of graffito: "a graffito", but "these graffiti") are writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or painted illicitly on a wall or other surface, often within public view.[1] Graffiti range from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and they have existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire."

That's the best description of graffiti I've ever seen. Way better than the dictionary stuff.

Now back to "Color applied to a surface not normally designated for that purpose."

Our gang a while back did a Street art/graffiti run in a section just outside of Honolulu. Sadly all these are gone now but the people who did these are AMAZING artists. Having a rabbit one made my day.

Not exactly graffiti, but might belong here regardless. Several years ago but looks like it's still there: https://goo.gl/maps/6ygw99ukRqr

The back of George R.R. Martin's Jean Cocteau theater in Santa Fe. Painted by John Pugh.

Might as well post a shot of my scooter in front of the mural I painted in my scooter's parking spot.

Found another wall and couldn't resist. In San Antonio on North Elmendorf just south of Cincinnati.

GVDB: Wow. Can't believe I missed your work here, or this thread. Bravo!

Meanwhile: Asbury Park offers an embarrassment of riches in terms of street art, to the point of it making it tough to pick just one. For now, here's one fave of mine - a tad more subtle than the rest, admittedly - more to come as time allows.
