Do you think that street art is senseless graffiti, consisting only of obscenities or phrases like "Steve was here"? Think again!
Public art is growing in popularity, and modern public artists are breaking the stereotypes! Street art has transformed into a respectable form of art that is expressive, impressive, and meant for public consumption.
