157 Graffiti & Street Art Innovations

From KAWS Bikes to Flaming Graffiti, the Best of Public Art

— June 14, 2009 — Art & Design
Street artists from KAWS to Banksy and Shepard Fairey prove that graffiti isn’t always the grungy, gang-affiliated territorial pissings that the art form is frequently lumped in with. Indeed, the most illustrious of these street artists are now authors, exhibited in fine art museums and recruited for high-profile projects like Shepard Fairey’s logo for Inauguration Day.

Click through the cluster below to see the best street art from Trend Hunter’s archives. You’ll see the bicycle KAWS designed for Lance Armstrong and LIVESTRONG, dozens of street art sightings and even designer graffiti cars.
