Cart1 is an amazing graffiti artist whose work ranges from colorful characters to realistic gray-scaled portraits.

The amount of detail that Cart1 has put into the facial expressions and the hairlines truly shows his skills as a street artist. What's interesting about these portraits is that they were found in a small village in the outskirts of Paris instead of a larger city like Berlin.

Implications - In recent years, street art and graffiti have moved from an oft-criticized subculture to viable sub-genre of contemporary art. Corporations and brands can establish themselves as companies on the forefront of modern youth culture by attaching their names to products designed by or with famed graffiti and street artists.
