Graffiti Coloring Pages
You might consider graffiti as a form of vandalism done by irresponsible guys but when done artistically and organized properly, they can actually be a fascinating street art, one that you can enjoy. I can't say that I love graffiti art but it doesn't mean I hate them. I only do hate them when they're created by some ignorant fools who know nothing about street art and only think that random scribbles can look beautiful. Anyway, I happened to learn a few years abo about some local government in some third world countries actually hire a number graffiti artists to decorate the city features. The results are quite awesome and the amount of vandalism acts decrease significantly.
Now, if you're looking for some graffiti coloring pages, you can satisfy yourself with the lots of them below. Some of them look pretty challenging, so I hope you won't give them to your elementary school kids. I think they would do a great job to keep teenagers engaged, though. Some of the text reads "Top Secret", "Money", "I'm just sayin". There is one that says "Party Zone" and it features some funny looking clown on top of it. That actually looks cheerful. Anyway, I hope you like them.
