Top 10 Street Art Examples from 2015
You Won’t Believe What These Street Artists Have Created
Not everyone understands or appreciates “street art.” Some people still restrict it in their minds to tagging and graffiti that is common among gangs–and can be found in big cities and small towns around the world. At least until it is painted over by the property owner.
In the examples featured here, the paintings still retain the spontaneity, but the skill can not be denied.
Not in any particular order are our top 10…
In some cases the intent appears to add beauty to the urban landscape.
1. Case in point, this piece by Marko, seems to sparkle in the City of Lights, Paris, France.
2. Another example of beauty, this time more realistically rendered can be found in the Big Apple: New York City.

3. Portraits are a popular theme, whether of beautiful women (above) or other figures, as seen in this piece found in Barcelona, Spain, painted by Axe Colours
Artist: Axe Colours
4. At times the paint seems to drip over the entire city…or at least a major portion of a hillside as seen in Las Palmitas, Mexico.

5. Humor and whimsy are featured in this piece found in Oz, France.
Artist: Vinie Graffiti
6. More humor in these painted gummi bears. Don’t you love how the photographer timed it so the shadows the people make are just about in the same angle as the gummis’?

7. In Hawaii, Hula has created a rescue scene in the making. We can just imagine how many heroes pose helping the fair damsel in distress.
8. Social Commentary is another popular topic in street art, as seen in this example from Milan, Italy by Millo.
9. This fun piece in Lisbon, Portugal is by Bordalo II. We love how the body appears to contain found objects and the beak extends beyond the building.

10. Just for fun, this street art tells a story of growing up, familiar to just about everyone. Found in Weston-super-Mare, Britain, by Banksy.
11. OK, we just couldn’t resist giving a bonus! This example of a roof top in Hong Kong, China by Fin DAC caught our eye
