From Arcade Character Installations to Socially Conscious Murals

Most urban centers in the western world have at least a few graffiti wall murals whether they like it or not. Graffiti artists are notoriously rebellious and often take pride in tagging obscure, hard-to-reach places in metropolitan centers. However, with most of these graffiti wall murals you have to assume they probably had permission due to the time it would take to create them.

The concepts for these wall murals vary as much as their color schemes do. One is an optical illusion wall mural painted to look like a 3D light switch on the side of a building in Poland. There's also a wall in Toronto, Canada, that features a Megaman graffiti wall mural.
