Picasso vandalizing . . .Really?

Sorry, I am all for helping the suffering but defacing great works of art does nothing to help. I struggle with graffiti as art. By that I mean "tagging", or spraying your stylized initials of symbols on everything and anything. Not, the great graffiti art we have seen since the days of cave painting. Tagging the modern graffiti are appears more like a juvenile cry of "look at me" than meaningful expression. Talk me down here. But, this little act makes it even harder for me to appreciate the current movement in graffiti.
