    The Graffiti Artist(aka. Writer) is a nocturnal creature. It dwells aruond the city looking for a good spot where its work could be seen. These spots are ussualy picked in advance. Under the cover of darkness it creates a large image using style and colours. It is rarely seen creating his art during the day. His natural habitat is still unknown as it travels from the inner city to the outer suburbs. If spotted it gennerally hides or runs especially if seen by the graffiti hunters. In rare cases it has been known to fight back. The artist ussually carries weapons such as knives.
    The weak, stupid and untalented of the graffiti world are known as toys. Their work is written over or crossed out by bigger and better known artists. Toys are ussualy in a stage of denial about their creative abilities. This explains the shit graffiti that we see all around our city. Toys are considered an inferior breed of artist and are sometimes hunted down and beaten by the better artists. Toys are classified as ''An inexperienced or unskilled writer'' and are the reason why graffiti is seen as vandalism.
    The graffiti buffers are like parasites. They get paid to clean up the work of various artists. If wasn't for graffiti they would be out of work. It could be argued that the graffiti artist puts food on their tables. They love the sight of a clean wall and can be often seen wandering along the tracks, cleaning with their powerfull hoses. Because they clean so often, most people see it as a waste of time for a writer to put his work on the luas track; but none the less artists wander occasionally to put thier work and money into it. The work of the graffiti artist known as 'Grift' is regularly targeted by buffers on order from a local TD. Even though artists hate buffers, one artist named himself 'The Buff Monster'. His work can be seen in 'Graffiti world'.
    In the 80's graffiti artists were spotted in train yards late at night. They were there to put their work on trains for the whole city to see. But sadly, less and less writers are seen near trains as buffers and graffiti hunters have made it dangerous. Due to this we have less
    information about writers.
    These days some artist are put in their natural enviroment and given supplies to create their work. They are paid and guaranteed that the place is completely legal. This is in hope that more could be learned about their kind. For instance Cope2 was paid $20,000 last month to paint a billboard for an american company.
    Their work is deemed as illegal and anti-social behaviour by most people. But this kind of behaviour is in their nature.
    Graff artists ussually travel in packs called ''crews''. This lowers the risk of getting caught as they keep lookout while the others are working. Crews also write one name between them so that it is known that they are friends.Examples of international crews: TATS cru, UA, FX.
    For a while it was thought that graffiti artist marked their territory using tags to let others know who is in charge. This is a lot like a dog pissing. To some extent that is still true today. Some crews and individual artists have put tags, pieces, throw-ups, scratchies, etc. in every corner of the city and have become: "ALL CITY''. But some chosen writers have managed to become known world-wide for their work. These artists are true graffiti legends. Such as: Seen, Cope2, GreatBates, Loomit and T-Kid.
    Graffiti artists talk in a secret language. To us words like ''bombin, throw-up, toy, back-to-back, king and heaven(spot)'' seem like they have nothing to do with graffiti, but these words have a diffrent meaning to a graffiti artist. For example, a writer can go bombin without blowing anything up. An artist can also become a king without actually ruling a country.
