Graffiti can act as a creative outlet for people who struggle to express their emotions verbally. There was a news article by David Vognar published in the Huffington Post called ‘Prison Art Is Taking Off’. The article explains how art therapy has been helpful to prison inmates. Some benefits, according to the article, of art therapy in prisons are its cost-effectiveness, decrease in depression among inmates, and decrease in behavioral issues associated with mental illness. Although the particular art created by these prisoners is not graffiti specifically, if we define graffiti as another art form, we can argue for its emotional benefits to people in the prison population.
