Graffiti or Art?

I recently found these stencil based images on a small power box by the sidewalk, about a block away from our office. For all technical purposes, this is illegal art. However, unlike tagging, which is the equivelant of a human dog marking their territory with something that adds no cultural value (imo), this was actually intriguing and somewhat thought provoking.

Similar to a mural, these stenciled images seem to present a story (possibly random). It transformed an otherwise boring green box into an abstract message. I’m curious to know how other people feel about this. Do you see it as an illegal and visual eyesore or do find cultural value in it? Also, do you see any (guerrilla) marketing value in this type of graffiti?
