It could be argued that murals such as the ones shown here have more impact on people than any other art form, given that it’s a part of the viewers’ environment.
It’s not necessary to visit an art museum or gallery to be affected by such a piece; one only needs to take a walk down the street.
This grouping of thirty large-scale street art murals located all over the world is worth the few minutes it will take readers to peruse.
After all, how often does one get the chance to take a virtual art walk down the streets of so many countries in such a short time?

Glued On Paris Street Art .

I like the way the street artists of Paris now glue paper of their work 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.

We’ve compiled a list of our favorite street art masterpieces in New York City — thanks in large part to BSA’s experts Rojo and Harrington, who walked us through some of their favorite locales to ogle wheatepastes and aerosol designs, from the Bronx to Coney Island.

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.
“It is a a creative phenomenon and its form is not only focused on the artwork but on the environment that it surrounds.
