We once delivered a countdown of the best places in the world to find street art. Now, we are bringing you our list of 10 Most Famous Pieces Of Street Art. These pieces of art are some of the most talked about works from the most famous artists.
Street art is a very tough way of creating art. Mainly because it is highly illegal, street artists risk real jail time in order to create some of the most beautiful and controversial works of art. Unlike regular canvasses used by artists, the world is a street artist’s canvas.
Many of the works of art also highlight social and political issues in the world today and at times may even bring light to the suffering of those who don’t have a voice. At its best, street art can be inspiring and gorgeous to look at. So, check out our list of 10 Most Famous Pieces Of Street Art.
