Street artists interact with their environment in a way that is reality based; not producing art to be kept locked up behind pristine museum doors, but left exposed, open for interpretation and interaction.
Google’s somewhat controversial Street View has made it easier than ever to check out artists and their works that are swirling around the web with their Street Art Project. The project captures street art with its custom built cameras, making it possible to discover works from all over the world. Currently, there are more than 5,000 images in high resolution available.
The Street Art Project was developed by the Google Cultural Institute in order to make a catalog of street art available to a global audience. The collection includes wide ranging displays of installations, exhibitions and wall murals.
Since part of the lure of street art is that no matter how grand the production, it is likely temporary. The project has captured many works that are no longer up, commemorating their once poignant displays.
The following are just a few examples of street artists among the many talents that have made big impressions with their creative works.
ROA has a global canvas of buildings under his belt, and his themed pieces bring attention to animal rights and other pertinent issues.
These pieces by Mr. Thoms are relevant reminders to step away from the social media void.
