Graffiti in Los Angeles: Art, Vandalism or Both? Graffiti writers have teachers, codes of conduct and ethical standards. Not all of them are involved with gangs. Considered to be public art and beloved by commuters, LA freeways are decorated with murals by commissioned painters. The California Department of Transportation has spent almost $2 Million dollars in the past two years restoring murals defaced by graffiti.
