Art Illusions & Paintings on City Streets
Street art can take many forms from sculptures and art installations to graffiti and 3D chalk drawings. This page focusses on spray paint graffiti and amazing sidewalk optical illusions.
I've compiled links to online photo galleries of the best painted street art around, plus a display of the best examples I've found.
I hope you enjoy browsing through the fantastic building murals, realistic trompe l'oeil paintings, graffiti artwork and mind-boggling 3D pavement art shown below, and perhaps it will inspire you :-)
A Mini Intro
Street art is an accessible way for everyone to appreciate art because it is widespread and free to look at - like having an art gallery in the open air!
Street art can take many different forms including graffiti, murals, temporary chalk drawings and even knitting. Although often not legal, when street art is done well it really adds character and color to the urban landscape.
