That's a pretty narrowminded view to be honest.
You can't just say "Use a peice of paper" because the medium is a pretty important part of any peice of art.
The problem with art is anyone can do literally anything and claim it's art.
Some dude in some latin country I forget the name of had chained a dog up and starved it to death, and called it art.
And I'm sure whoever owns the house or building is being vandalized doesn't appreciate the "art" of their building being ruined, whether it's with a very pretty picture or a retarded tag.
If it wasn't a crime, it'd be fine. But it is, and people don't appreciate it, so I guess graffiti is just the most artistic way to be an asshole =/
