Like all cities, Portland has a lot of graffiti art, tagging, vandalism, and any other words one might use for graffiti. And like other cities, considerable controversy exists over what is public art and personal expression, and what is destructive defacement of public and private property. Business owners are in a constant low-level conflict with street artists, taggers and other individuals, and often paint over tags and graffiti (sometimes creating a graffiti that is even less attractive).
