Pirates are a talented bunch of mural artists in Britain; working mainly with spray paint, they also use a host of other media such as chalk, acrylic paint or pen for smaller scale work.
Interestingly, graffiti has come a long way since the 1970s, moving from the walls and subway cars of New York city to, in some cases, when accepted as art, displayed in galleries and museums. This raises questions such as: How can vandalism be considered art? And is graffiti still graffiti if it is legal? Legal or not, it has been said that graffiti should not be dismissed for its pure illegitimacy, but appreciated and embraced for its form and style.
