Graffiti is generally considered pretty taboo in the art world and in society. Graffiti can make a once beautiful neighborhood look trashy and scary, however, some graffiti artists are so innovative, we can’t help but love their work! See what you think…

Finish Him!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg096.jpg

Mortal Combat, anyone?

Huh?

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg099.jpg

I don’t know that we’d consider this graffiti, but it might be. Can you repeat the question?

Turned On

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg015.jpg

What turns you on? This artist is turned on by switches. Is this a metaphor?

Keep Out

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg003.jpg

This tree looked kind of creepy already, but with the red eyes added by a rogue artist, we are staying out of these woods!

One Man’s Dirty Truck

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg005.jpg

Is another man’s gigantic canvas! (This one is seriously amazing!)

The Higher the Hair the Closer to Heaven

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg007.jpg

So thanks to this artist, Marge should be safe!

Do you live under a rock?

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg060.jpg

Because Patrick does, and he is sick of being forgotten about.

Happy Little Alien

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg067.jpg

This creative artist wanted to cheer up the place. There is no easier way to do this then to add a happy smile.

WHAM!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg069.jpg

Help! I’m a rusty old pipe and I’m being beaten!! We have to give props to the artist for this one. It’s pretty funny!

Dead fish…

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg071.jpg

…or cat distractor? Either way, it’s funny and clever!

We don’t even want to know!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg073.jpg

Harry Potter joke? Bathroom humor? We don’t know… but it’s causing very unpleasant images in our minds! Ew…

Forefathers

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg074.jpg

We knew Benjamin Franklin invented a ton of cool stuff, but did you know that he also invented the “selfie?” Us neither!

Shadow Stitch

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg075.jpg

This individual certainly has an eye for art if they were creative enough to turn a shadow into Stitch. How cute!

Drawing Inspiration

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg076.jpg

This one isn’t that creative – plenty of artists draw out their plans with a pencil before they lay on the paint.

Huh?

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg077.jpg

We don’t get this one, but it’s funny to say in an Arnold Schwarzenegger accent!

It’s a Me…

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg078.jpg

…Mario’s faithful guide, and sometimes obnoxious burden, Toad! Hey buddy! Which way should we go?

You had ONE Job!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg079.jpg

Your one-stop shop!

For WHAT??

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg080.jpg

This graffiti artist (I’m using the word “artist” very loosely here) is just searching for the next Darwin Award winner. We are no doctors, but seriously, we do not advise you stick a gas nozzle up there. It sounds like a bad idea, but your mileage may vary.

That landing is going to hurt!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg081.jpg

We don’t think there is supposed to be a message here. It is just a hilarious, creative doodle, and an excellent use of a broken vent.

It’s Always Australia

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg082.jpg

We knew everything in Australia could kill you, but we sure didn’t know that this scary thing lived there! I’d stay away from this one.

Oops!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg083.jpg

This one is pretty funny. We know what happened the last time somebody ate a forbidden apple cough Eve cough. (But where are the apples??)

Rudolph

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg084.jpg

Aw, no need to take caution of this guy! He just wants to play some reindeer games!

Gotham

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg085.jpg

No need to fear! Batman is always watching over this city.

Strong Man

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg087.jpg

We are happy to see this mustachioed man achieving his dreams. We just wish he were wearing a longer dress.

Domo Arigato

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg089.jpg

We didn’t even recognize the electrical unit because we thought this was an actual robot! This one is cute.

Behind Bars

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg090.jpg

This zebra graffiti is grate!

Not that creative

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg091.jpg

If you don’t have a political agenda or a cute robot idea, you can always just make a cheesy pun by vandalizing a record. (Don’t really do this!)

A little Novocain, please?

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg092.jpg

We aren’t sure what this sign was originally trying to say, but now it appears to be telling us to stay away from this prehistoric dentist. Ouch!

Mad Minion

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg093.jpg

This little guy was just skipped over for Employee of the Month again!

A little dirt never hurt

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg052.jpg

Filthy car or perfect canvas? Who are we to decide?

AAAAHHHH!!!!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg059.jpg

This one is pretty funny. This rendition of Edward Munch’s painting The Scream gave us a good laugh!

Get Those Rings!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg044.jpg

As a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, I have to give this one a huge thumbs up! Go Sonic! Go Tails!

Bathroom Humor

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg043.jpg

Much like the bathroom it’s in, this “art” stinks!

Har Har

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg045.jpg

This one is so cheesy, but it did get a laugh out of us.

Fixer Upper

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg046.jpg

This artist made a very cool graffiti piece out of this hidden junky van. We love it!

Low Self-Esteem

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg047.jpg

High-flow toilets, low self-esteem sinks.

Who said that?

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg048.jpg

Oh – just a weird vent that looks peculiarly like Darth Vader.

Hint, HINT!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg049.jpg

A pothole should not be old enough to say the alphabet. Shame! This is a great statement piece.

The best philosophy around

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg050.jpg

No more than 60 miles per hour and no more worries. Hakuna Matata!

Green Light

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg053.jpg

The only street in the world where everybody is driving 40 miles per hour under the speed limit.

Good Point

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg054.jpg

I, for one, would support both of these causes.

WOAH!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg055.jpg

Do you ever feel like you’re being watched? Because I think this tree is creeping on people.

Sumo Solution

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg056.jpg

Why fix it when you can turn it into art? We love this cool painting of a Sumo Wrestler who appears to be very strong!

DJ Sewer

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg057.jpg

Did the Ninja Turtles get a side hustle?

‘Tis But a Flesh Wound

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg058.jpg

That crack looks pretty bad… Are we sure those Band-Aids are going to hold?

Mythical Creature

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg061.jpg

We have never seen an animal like this before. Is it a deer? Reindeer? Fairy? Quite the mystery.

Does Not Stop

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg062.jpg

This might not exactly be a work of art, but it sure is funny!

Bitter

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg063.jpg

Somebody just went through a bad breakup. Yikes!

Look Out!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg064.jpg

You don’t want to kill a giant bird or your car, so take heed!

Snoopy

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg065.jpg

No better place to take a nap than on Snoopy’s doghouse!

King of the Korner

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg004.jpg

This clever street artist created King Kong on the banged up corner of this building. We like it better this way!

Going Home

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg001.jpg

Run little cow, run! Uh oh. The aliens beamed him up. I hope they’re vegetarians!

Ramp it up

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg009.jpg

Is this statue a statue of the man in the background? The similarities are uncanny!

Depressing Meme

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg010.jpg

A sad truth! Thanks for the reminder.

Abra CATabra

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg011.jpg

For when your baby is really cranky, and you’d prefer a litter box trained cat instead.

Who You Gonna Call

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg012.jpg

It’s the off-brand Ghosts Busters!

Fancy Faucet

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg013.jpg

Some clever artist created a beautiful rainbow to spruce up this dark, old faucet. We love it!

Poor Bills

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg014.jpg

Uh… they might want to change out one of those bottom bills. That’s bad billing right there!

Baby Shark

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg016.jpg

This little Hammerhead shark is adorable. We’d let him hold our purse.

Well, it’s not wrong.

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg017.jpg

Cool joke, Dad.

HA! A classic.

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg018.jpg

“Run, Forest!” This one is pretty good.

Very Clever!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg019.jpg

This one is hilarious and creative! 10/10!

That One Friend

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg020.jpg

Even mailboxes have that one friend that can’t hold their booze. Keep it together, man!

Aww!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg021.jpg

Well how could we take that sweet baby seal away! This one might not technically be art, but it is adorable!

Rainbow Bright

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg022.jpg

This artist added a splash of color to this boring pipe and hopefully a splash of color to the passersby.

Reach!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg023.jpg

This cute little silhouette adds some cheeriness to these already cheery, red berries.

A Bold Statement

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg024.jpg

This might just be more bathroom scribbles, but he isn’t wrong. Sorry, Dunkin’!

Place WHAT Here??

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalisimg025.jpg

We all know babies can be annoying, but this might be a little extreme!

Game of Thrones

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalisimg026.jpg

Ugly, burned up building or beautiful dragon painting? Por que no los dos?

Gnome Sweet Gnome

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalisimg027.jpg

Can Snow White come out and play?

Secret’s Out

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalisimg028.jpg

Better ask for bigger craft service carts on those movie sets!

Interpretation

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalisimg029.jpg

I guess these bathroom pictures are open to interpretation. I like the potato one the best.

Summer Time Treat

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg030.jpg

It’s nice to see a touch of color on this dull gray wall, but it is making us very hungry for ice cream in this hot weather!

Follow that star!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg031.jpg

Let’s hope that these wise men know where they’re going – and that they didn’t forget the presents!

D’oh!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg032.jpg

We fell for it. Busted!

Equal Bathroom Rights

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalisimg033.jpg

X-Men have to use the bathroom too! We are glad to see this restaurant accommodating them.

On a Bender

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg034-1.jpg

A Futurama fan turned this boring parking lot into homage to our favorite robot, Bender! We love it.

Well… Why Not?

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg035.jpg

Probably because plants don’t grow to well in concrete.

Bug-Eyed

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg036.jpg

These elves look like they’re on something. They’re definitely seeing some stuff.

UFO

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg037.jpg

Storm drain, storm trooper? This clever artist sees Star Wars wherever they go, and now you will too!

Hold Your Applause

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg038.jpg

Aww, this is nice. Bubbles don’t get enough credit for their hard work. You go, bubbles!

Paranormal Post Box

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg039.jpg

Let’s hope this creepy little ghost doesn’t go postal!

HELP!

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg040.jpg

Help! Is there a lifeguard emoji around here?.. and a doctor?

Call the Cops

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandalismimg041.jpg

This bandit is hiding in plain sight, and he looks pretty confident that he won’t get caught.

Grin and Bear it

http://americanupbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/vandaliamimg042.jpg

We love this piece this artist did of the Cheshire Cat grinning away on the shadow tree’s branches. Cute and creepy!

Look around you, there is art everywhere! Keep your eyes peeled for graffiti art and antics.
