Graffiti in KL, A New Norm

Throughout the decades graffiti has always been a controversial subject. In most countries, marking or painting property without permission is considered defacement and vandalism. But some say it is a misunderstood art form, as it gives a city character. No matter what city you go to anywhere in the world, there’s bound to be murals and graffiti scattered around. In fact, graffiti has nowadays become more acceptable with brands, developers and even governments pay graffiti artists to decorate their buildings and products. Some say it can even enhance the value of a property. Joining us on today's show is a KL-based graffiti artist, Cloakwork to help us understand his art and the growing acceptance of graffitis.
