I find myself lining up with BellyTank and Lauren here. Grafitti can be "art." So is this stuff of Banksy's. I won't go so far as to describe either of these examples as "good art," though... I think the "is it Art?" question is often a difficult one to answer. It's sort of like the question, "Do the means justify the end?" To me it's a question that must be answered on a case-by-case basis. Also, just because I don't particularly like something doesn't mean it's not "Art." Hammett and Chandler weren't considered authors of "literature" in their days. Come to find out, they were, however. Often it just takes some time for resistance or prejudices to be overcome.
