Urban art installations take graffiti to the next level. They offer a more three-dimensional work for passerbys that can give a fuller experience. These installations come in the form of clever sculptures, crafty add-ons and/or manipulations. They can either stand out or blend in with its urban environment.

It is important to note that they are not always illegal or frowned upon. They can also be commissioned by the city and/or used in creative advertising campaigns.

Whatever their purpose, urban art installations are a great way for any level of expertise artist to express themselves to a large audience. They often make a rebellious statement or commentary on its surroundings with creative use of what is available. The pieces themselves may be temporary, but the statement they make is eternal.
