From Living Street Paintings to Street Style Wall Decals

 - Jan 5, 2014
This year's graffiti trends demonstrate the extent to which pop culture and art have come together like never before. From television to film and literature, this year's graffiti reflects pop culture's most iconic and irresistible characters and personalities -- both present and past.

Artists have transformed popular television characters such as Walter White from the the hit series Breaking Bad to massive wall murals in dense urban centers. Other characters to be splashed, painted and strewn across walls are classic Disney favorites. These characters, however, are represented in slightly darker and more twisted ways than their on-screen versions.

When discussing this year's most popular graffiti trends, one has to mention the interactive elements now incorporated into today's street art. Many artists now create drawings and illustrations that require an audience to be complete. Some artists are also creating pieces that change based on the angle from which they are being viewed.
