Grafitti = Vandalism?

Grafitti according to Wikipedia Graffiti (singular: graffito; the plural is used as a mass noun) is the name for images or lettering scratched, scrawled, painted or marked in any manner on property. Graffiti is sometimes regarded as a form of art and other times regarded as unsightly damage or unwanted.

Is grafitti actually a nuisance? 

In most countries, defacing property with graffiti without the property owner's consent is considered vandalism.

Pictures posted blow was taken on the walls along Sungai Gombak Gombak next to the Pasar Seni LRT Station and one on the perimeter wall of TNB. Can this be considered vandalism? 

It is art but maybe the way applied without permisison of the owner of the property. Looking at the photos do you think it looks nicer than just a plain wall? Maybe the authority can use these grafitti artist, legalise their art work and get them to decorate plain dull walls with their skillful hands instead of being posted illegally with Along's posters or other illegal advertisement that is an eyesore. Maybe all LRT pillars being decorated with Grafitti and who know Kuala Lumpur city might be known as the city legal Grafitti's.  
This Grafitti at the Masjid Jame underground station was made by TM.
Is Grafitti vandalism after all?

well..rather than they just go scribble somewhere and put up vulgar pics or words on the floor..I would recommend if they were given a big big empty walls that needed their creativity...after all...we could use some good street artist there to show what they good..in a good way.

i agree, vandals practice their vandalism when there is no proper outlet for them to release their desires and urge.
