'Street Art' by Johannes Stahl is not just a collection of awe-inspiring graffiti images, but it is also a keepsake featuring the history of this illegal art form.

The book features various well-known artists who over the years have brought this underground artistry into the mainstream. Banksy, Kaws, Shepard Fairey, and many others are mentioned in Stahl's book for shedding light on this supposedly criminal activity.

Businesses have introduced and should continue to encourage a modicum of education to graffiti, video games and even toys.
