Graffiti has had a chequered past in the art world and in society in general, and its use in warfare has also been underplayed. In this thought-provoking article, Neil Verrall and Richard Clay illuminate the historical role and impact of graffiti in society, art and war; they argue for a fresh look at its contemporary use within influence operations and behaviour change in a time of ‘warfare in the information age’.
