This is such a small part of one amazing film but I fuckin love how Spiderverse normalizes graffiti culture, the graffiti scenes were some of the best bits of writing in the film. You see Miles going from stickering signposts, to tagging subway walls, to eventually painting a huge mural on a visible wall. The development of his artistic expression parallels and complements the development his character goes through as the story progresses
It clearly has a lot of respect for graffiti culture and portrays it incredibly well as a result. That's far more than I can say for 99% of media that portrays underground subcultures
