30 Examples of Playful Street Art

From Guerrilla Street Shadows to Urban Beautification

— July 29, 2010 — Art & Design
Graffiti is traditionally used as a subversive medium for social commentary, a backlash against society and pop culture, but these examples of playful street art show that sometimes -- just sometimes -- street art is created just for fun.

From guerrilla street shadows meant to make pedestrians think of happy childhood years to urban beautification, see these and more examples of playful street art above.

Implications - Graffiti is just one example of an artform that is gaining appreciation as more than just a nuisance, as it was once perceived by many in society. Considering incorporating similar artistic elements into store-front designs and product packaging can allow businesses to infuse fun and expression into their products.
