All I found on this page is eye-absorbing graffiti, so they are arts.  As long as painters can provide such work, just let them do it.

I would caution you against being too generous. Graffiti may be artistic but they can be utterly unwelcome. In the West graffiti are sprayed on anyone's house. You can see entire facades painted in graffiti and think, "hey, doesn't it look cool?" but what about the owner of the building thus painted? Graffiti can cause the value of a property to drop. Graffiti commonly adorn public infrastructure, railway equipment, stadia, office  buildings, pedestrian passages under roads or above them.

Remember the recent outcry over how sections of the Great Wall had been vandalized?

Most if not all places where you see graffiti is soo f***ed-up, it's not so bad if you put some color to these places.

Yeah, I overlooked the damage caused by graffiti. The best way is to provide an area for enthusiastic painters spraying their masterpieces. For those who spray graffiti out of the permitted area, they should get punished. What do you think of this proposal?
