Graffiti & Artwork

Is graffiti an expression of artwork?
In my opinion is isn't. Graffiti originated from gangs who put up their gang symbols to mark their territory. It wasn't meant to be a form of artwork it was to let the other gangs know in whose territory they were in. If you travel through the neighborhoods of Detroit you will see that graffiti has ruined the look of neighborhoods that once were beautiful. For this reason I say that graffiti is not a form of artwork.
