Street Art & Urban Art

Street Art or Urban Art is a popular way for artists to express themselves in cities around the world.

Street Art is art created in public places, artists will use buildings, walk ways and the city streets as their canvas. Typical Street Art forms include Chalk Art, Stencil Art, Graffiti, Paste-ups and Sticker Art. In some cities Street Art is celebrated (e.g. in Australia: Hosier Lane, Melbourne; Mays Lane, Sydney) while in other places it is treated as an illegal art form punishable by fines and in some cases jail terms.

Urban Art is art that relates to the city and city life. It encompasses Street Art and also includes: Fashion or Wearable Art, Paintings, Cartoons, Illustrations, Sculpture, Body Art, Music, Spoken Word, Poetry, Movement and more. You can find Urban Art in the streets, parks, galleries, office spaces; it can even be the way people speak and dress.

Urban Art has a real cool factor, with images of outstanding works being spread far & wide on the internet. While Urban Art may be temporary on the streets or at an event, images will live on, and in some cases will travel around the world.
