I have reported paintings and photographs behaving the same way in the past (going blank), but this also affects graffiti. Basically, when viewed from any other lot that isn't the lot the graffiti is painted on, the graffiti will not be there, the object will revert to the default state. While I understand why they'd make paintings and photographs behave this way (to save performance), it's kind of pointless to have graffiti behave this way since, well, it IS meant to be placed on exterior walls and floors...
Here is an example. I have blank garage doors on this lot that I painted on, as well as some graffiti in front of them. This is what the lot is meant to look like (currently unfinished):
This is what it looks like when viewed while my sim is visiting the adjoining lot:

@ju1ka I get your logic of wanting to be able to see the graffiti from other lots, but I would imagine that it is coded the same way as other personalized artwork and so is handled the same way from a viewing perspective. If they changed that, it would probably apply to the paintings and photos as well. Don't get me wrong; I'd love to see them all visible off lot, and I think we have that request in already on the Build Mode Feedback thread,(I'll add graffiti to it), but I do think the current behavior is by design and not a bug.
I agree with Bryony but maybe @SimGuruNick can give us some definite answer on Monday
