The city – particularly around Digbeth – is attracting talented artists who use the urban landscape as their canvas.
And the good thing about street art is, it changes from month to month.
In December we spoke to street artist Rebecca Wright – who runs http://www.streetartbirmingham.co.uk with fellow artist Karl Paragreen – she said: “Street art is all around us, in urban spaces across the world.
“It is a a creative phenomenon and its form is not only focused on the artwork but on the environment that it surrounds.

Berlin artist Kim Kwacz aka Kim Köster presents his new work “Monzter”.
Like in his internationally known art projects “99 rooms” and “Ana Somnia“, Kim blurs the boundaries of reality and fiction by transferring mural artwork into the digital world.
“Monzter“ is a picture book for the iPad. It is Kim’s first work focusing on children.
He created the numerous pieces in abandoned factory buildings outside of Berlin.

I like the way street artists now glue paper on Paris walls instead of painting them with spray paint.
It allows passers by to discover new artists without damaging the walls, nor costing money to tax payers (for the city has to clean these walls eventually, no matter what).
I really love this one, shame that it’s not signed.
Emerging from the diverse settings that can be found in Seoul are new forms of street art also known as graffiti. Unlike traditional graffiti, these pictures are quite dazzling. While skyscrapers and apartment complexes overshadow the horizon in Seoul, young artists have found homes among the concrete walls, that have allowed them to express their inner thoughts.
Specific districts have now been set up, where people are welcome to paint their graffiti on the wall.
Graffiti was a serious crime in the past, but authorities now have a new outlook on the art form. Projects such as the Naksan Art Project and the Seoul Urban Art Project have helped shape the resentment that residents had towards street artists in the past. Policy makers have adjusted their conservative views to allow graffiti to be an accepted form of expression upon the city.
This has constructed a city full of beautiful images upon every turn. The residents who once hated the artwork, now welcome it as they see the benefits that it brings such as huge revenues from tourism.

Nowadays you don’t have to go to a art gallery to see creative art, in this collection we’ve gathered examples of Street Art, which showcase how important street art is to the community.
Imagine turning the ordinary fence, wall or column into something creative by adding in street art. Not only can it brighten up an otherwise dull area, but it can attract visitors to the location.
Bringing smiles to peoples faces and even raising eyebrows, street art can help bring life to a city.
The opposite to street art is usually known as graffiti, this can have a devastating impact on a community.
Attacking abandoned buildings and run down communities, bad street art can lead to neighborhoods uninviting leading to vandalism.
