The impulse to create art has been evident since the beginning of the evolution of mankind. From the earliest cave paintings from Paleolithic Europe (25,000-10,000 BC) through to today, humans have marked the walls of their homes and/or buildings with naturalistic or geometrically simplified pictures, designs, or writing. During the Paleolithic Era, humans decorated their caves with images of the animals they hunted or hoped to hunt as they tried to provide for the survival of their clans. By marking on the walls, they sought to collapse the boundary between the fiction of “art” and the realities of their situation hoping that control in the former would translate into control over the latter. Graffiti created in our own era is identical in its creative impulse. Words, pictographs, names, and insignias are sprawled onto buildings, trains, buses and other public properties in an attempt by the marker to be seen/heard/recognized/acknowledged while also assuming territorial rites over that property.
