100 Awesome Graffiti Specimens

An Exciting Exploration Into the Spectacular World of Street Art

— March 8, 2011 — Art & Design
Although once viewed as a criminal act of vandalism, the art of graffiti has been steadily earning its place as a respected and popular form of creation over the past few decades, as is clearly shown in this collection of awesome graffiti specimens.

From billboard bombing to yarn pothole repairs, these awesome graffiti specimens highlight the seemingly limitless amount of ways that imagination, creativity and a little bit of mischief have manifested themselves into public artworks. In fact, because graffiti is a medium without any rules, guidelines, oversight or expectation of financial reward, it could easily be argued that it is in fact one of the truest and most pure forms of artistic expression in existence.

Check out this gathering of awesome graffiti specimens and decide for yourself.
