To describe drawings or paintings on the walls we use different words like: graffiti, street art, tags, murals... But what do these words really mean? To explain these terms, primarily graffiti and street art, we will check different definitions in order to find which one can explain best what graffiti stand for. We will look at concepts of some critics of graffiti and street art, just to show their ways of representing these terms, showing how different they can be and, at the same time, how right they can all be, because graffiti and street art offer a lot of space for discussion. Also, in order to understand them, we need to know how they are made and in which techniques, because this holds the key for their further comprehension.
