    Drawing on a wall doesn't make it graffiti. But thanks for the interesting article!

    AH! It's not his wall so you can say it is graffiti! I wonder now.. Let's say there was a caveman who said: This cave is mine.Another caveman visits his cave and scratches something on the wall. Is it graffiti? Or can you only say so after written laws?

    Sweet. We should start a sketchbook thread for him, backdate it to the year 1530. Have others on here tell him to study Bridgman.

    Hehe so he was a rebel! Great Michelangelo gets +1 brownie points from me. Now that's artistic drive. No paper? No matter. I'll just use these 4 giant canvases.

    I have to admit that made me lol quite a bit. Someone should secretly do it and give Michelangelo an alias. It would be comedy gold.

    Maybe the Sistine Chapel was the Pope's toilet, known then as the Cistern Crapel. Pope Julius allowed that Mike Angelo workman to use it and so liked the graffiti he had left behind, he decided to change its purpose...
    From Gegarin's point of view
