If graffiti changed anything - it would be illegal

The competitions for best graffities are held. For example, there are competitions with the depictions of the classic authors’ portraits on the territory of "Flacon" factory in Moscow or it is allowed tourists to draw on the Great Wall of China. Meanwhile, there are the organizations that don`t share the ideas of such type of art as painting on the walls, especially when it is referred to graffiti in the subway train carriages, on the billboards and road signs, as well as on the roofs of the stadiums.

We have translated from German the presentation of innovative agent for covering different surfaces: lacquer metal surfaces (train carriage, busses, metal rows of shopping stalls, etc), films (road signs, billboards), plastic materials (switch boards and distribution cabinets, bus stops, shop windows), and technical textile (the roofs of the stadiums). This agent is designed for surface protection as it aggravates application of "bad" paints, highlighters and air brushes. On top of that the agent simplifies surface cleaning.

As it is written in advertising text that was translated from German to Russian language in our translation agency the graffiti problem is very serious one, especially if aggressive lacquers or paints with addition of corrosive hydraulic fluids are used. Subsequently, our chemistry education specialist came down to translation as the part of the translation represented material safety data sheet translation to Russian. The main component of the agent is Polysilazan. It is a silicon containing polymer which is used in the production of lacquers with high bonding properties for different surfaces. "Chemistry and engineering chemistry" Russian-German dictionary was a special assistance for the translator.

A lot of people treat graffiti as an act of vandalism. For instance, there is special purpose anti-writers police unit in New York. People may get a commission for information about street artists and their works in this police unit. It is not surprise that some artists prefer to be anonymous. For example, no one ever seen British famous street artist Banksy. He is famous for his political and antiwar graffities. Many connoisseurs of art approve his works and earn big sums of money at the exhibitions of his works, while city authorities consider his works as act of vandalism and destruction of private property. That is why Banksy’s street graffities are washed or brushed.

Thus, there is no consensus whether graffiti is art or not (graffities were found in Pompey and the Catacombs). Consequently, there are both the sales of balloon spray paints (we also cooperate with a client who deals with the matter) as well as the sale of special agents for "anti-graffiti" coating (for example, the agent the usage instruction for which we have translated from German language recently).
