No discussion of graffiti would be complete without a reference to the Simon and Garfield hit song of 1966? called the Sounds of Silence.

To quote:
"And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made. And the sign flashed out its warning, in the words that it was forming. And the signs said, `The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls, and whispered in the sounds of silence."

Are we now "bowing and praying" to the "gods" of today's architecture?

What is the differentce between wall murals for decorative purposes and "Graffitti" for "cultural" or "political" purposes? How is this related to the murals of central and south american architecture? How is this related to the murals of Diego Rivera? We could go on and on.
