30 Unbelievable Examples of Street Art

Advertisement

One of the more inspiring elements of street art or graffiti is that it takes such a plain, simple part of our everyday lives and transforms it into something beautiful. Walls, trucks, pavements, drains, suddenly take on a different perspective when you see them as a creative surface to express a humorous or serious idea. Whether a street, the side of a building, or any other public object; street art brings life to what was once unnoticeable and ordinary in a form of ‘art crowdsourcing’ where, simultaneously, multiple artists contribute to the same project.

These examples illustrate incredible transformations of public or private space into colorful spectacles for the passer-by to freely enjoy – clearly an awesome side benefit of street art.

    I’ve lived in Barcelona for almost 8 years and only recently discovered just how much street art there is in this city. A lot of it is worn away or painted over, but for me that makes it even more beautiful because it’s in a constant state of flux. A lot of the pictures I’ve taken are of “damaged goods”, but they’re my favorites.
    Of this collection, my favorite would have to be the street cleaner rinsing away the cave paintings.
