28 Crazy and Inspiring Photos of Street Art from Around the World

This amazing collection of street art photographs is a result of a request by Audrey.  When I found out she wanted to see great street art I was more than excited, it's a passion for me.  I am a long time fan of Shepard Fairey / Obey Giant, Banksy, Julian Beever, Neckface and a slew of other talented yet often underrated street artists who choose an alternative way to display their works.

Done all around the world, street art is on display, free of charge and most artists want nothing more than some appreciation.  Often times there are political under tones or outright anger being the driving forces, street art is done most of the time just to be appreciated it.  Sure, most of the time it's vandalism and can be very costly to remove, but most of it is truly beautiful.  I hope you like the collection of photos Audrey, there are graffiti, wheat pasting, stencil art, mixed media, three dimensional and even live art in here too!
