hmmm... so if a graffiti artist were to paint a mural in black and white, wouldn't it still be art or would it be reduced to tagging?

Still art. The three color idea is not a rule; rather I take it as more of an indication of effort and thought behind a piece.

The image you have with this entry ends up being art to my eye, even though I think it was just a collection of different tags. The building on each other lends the wall much more depth than just one or two tags. Plus the layering gives it an abstract effect.

(I was kinda disappointed about a week after the "Ribbity" picture was taken because the authorities had removed the painting. It was on the window of a "For Lease" corner store and when they scraped it away the Budweiser advertisement was visible again. No matter how many colors they use in printing, it will still be less appealing than a well done tag.)

actually, I'm pretty sure that the pic I posted here isn't a collection of tags. It's very precise and intentional looking. And it kind of showed up all at once. I think it was more like commissioned by the city in fact.

As for the other issue... you know, Bud is "The King of Beers"
