Street art.. most beautiful decoration on the common alleys, concrete buildings, river bridges, railway stations, trains… And it can be found all over the world. Street art comes in varying shapes and forms, from sculptures to“yarn bombing”, and contains everything from graffiti fonts family to windows display and far more.
Here follows part 5 of the most popular graffiti around the globe:
Parisian artist Christian Guémy – also known as C215 – uses stencils to produce beautiful street art depicting vulnerable and marginalised groups of society including refugees, street children and the elderly. Since creating his first work over 20 years ago he’s developed a huge following. His street art can be spotted in galleries, auctions and on streets all over the world, in cities including Barcelona and London.
22. Interesni Kazki
Ukrainian duo AEC and Waone, aka Interesni Kazki, create bright and vibrant street art that references a variety of cultures and art forms including sci-fi, Mexican folk tales, religion and classical art. For the most part their surreal ideas are created with acrylic paint using rollers, although on some very small pieces of work they use spray cans.
New York-born, Baltimore-based street artist Gaia’s incredible skills, combined with his strange compositions have gained him worldwide recognition. He’s also keen to help others explore the street art medium, setting up festivals and group sessions to fill places like his town of Baltimore with new and exciting murals.
24. Julian Beever
There’s nothing quite like walking along your local high street and coming across a whole new, 3D world – completely made of chalk. Many other chalk artists could have featured in this list, but it’s Julian Beever’s playful approach to the medium that has us in awe.
The British artist started out as a busker, before attracting commercial commissions in the mid 2000s. He even made a 10-part TV series and released a book, Pavement Chalk Artist, in 2011.
25. See No Evil
For two consecutive summers, Bristol – home of Banksy and centre of a vigorous street art scene – played host to one of the biggest celebrations of street art Europe has ever seen.
Organised by legendary street artist Inkie and Team Love, it was See No Evil’s mission to transform one of city’s most deprived stretches of road into a work of art. Nelson Street, located in Bristol’s city centre was a dreary, grey walkway. Artists from around the world, including New York’s Tats Cru and LA’s El Macdescended upon the city to bring it to life.
