This collection of street art is centered on an anatomical theme. While graffiti featuring anatomical images is fairly rare, Ruiz has done a great job in collecting them.

My favorite piece is from London-based artist Pure Evil. While the inclusion of skeletons and skulls is of no surprise, for me the anatomically-correct hearts really do stand out.

Implications - Graffiti has gone from a commonly perceived nuisance to an accepted form of art in the past decade, with street artists like Banksy paving the way for graffiti artists looking to make a name for themselves outside of the urban demographic. Some identify street art as the truest form of artistic expression, as it rarely generates profit and is often created anonymously.
