Weapon-Inspired Street Art

The most positive thing about this trend is that most of not all of these pieces are making a statement against the use of guns on our streets. Of course, the pieces are awesome works of art in their own right, especially the gun-toting panda and the bandit piece.

It’s clear that guns are among the most powerful images in today’s society, albeit ones with totally negative associations.

The most notable example of weapon-inspired street art appeared on the side of the Tate Modern in London. It looked like a gun, of course, but in this instance it was a camera--good work from Parisian photographic graffiti artist JR.
