Artists- real, genuine, legitimate artists

Your man-child defaces other people's property for the thrill of it.
Whether he calls it "art" or not, your husband is committing a crime
That's a lesson, a habit, and a mindset he will
pass on to your child
It's the rush of doing something illegal and getting away with it that keeps him doing it.
This is very likely the only truth in his claims.
