Looks like Banksy will have some competition on the streets; Mobstr graffiti art has been popping up all over, and people are taking notice.

UK street artist Mobstr uses his community as his canvas. The opinionated graffiti guru sporadically spray paints statements and clever captions onto infrastructure such as walls, stairways and billboards. Some see his art as vandalism, while other more open-minded observers see Mobstr's message clearly.

Mobstr graffiti art pokes fun and criticizes society in a very visual fashion. He paints without permission, usually keeping his images clean and simple so as not to make his message frilly. His walled words are bold and black, as well as his sprayed silhouettes.

Mobstr graffiti art is pushing boundaries in society, while at the same time inspiring observers.
