There has been a lot of innovations in street art murals lately, all of which have been completed by seriously talented artists. What started out as basic graffiti lettering and sketches soon open up into a world of installation opportunities.

Each wall mural ranges in size, color and subject matter, some of which don't even involve walls at all. Street art has a way of beautifying the mundane, like trash cans, dumpsters, chopped logs and picket fences. These are objects that, to the naked may seem boring and typical, but to the artist are small windows of opportunity that must be seized at the moment.

What was a typical trashcan is now a city-goer carrying a little trash-pack, helping to keep the city clean.
