Like advertisements on billboards, sports fences, bus stops, depots, in newspapers, etc., a graffiti artist should pay for the space. Otherwise, it's just local art masking as a high-class advertisement.

Not prison labor, labor around town cleaning up trash. Log the equivalent of about 10 cents per hour and make him work off the entire balance. If he runs out of trash to clean up he can work in the food kitchens. He can clean out the public bathrooms. He needs to pay back every dime of his damage to the city and the residents whose property he trashed. Better yet, make his parents work along side of him since they never took the time to teach him to be a responsible person.
