40 Stunning and Creative Graffiti Artworks

Advertisement

Graffiti represents an art form that is unrestricted, one that rebels against conventional forms of artwork. Graffiti is intertwined into human history, dating back to the Roman Empires where they were plastered onto walls to make political statements and satirize current events.

Modern graffiti achieves many of the same things – to state a message that doesn’t necessarily fit into the norms of society. In this collection, for your inspiration and adoration, we present 40 remarkable graffiti and street artwork.

This article follows and adds to an article written last year, entitled Tribute To Graffiti: 50 Beautiful Graffiti Artworks.

    These are awesome. I really like these. It’s hard to find graffiti like this that isn’t covered by something else that’s stupid.

    “Rebels against traditional forms of artwork?” Hardly.

    Destroy’s other people’s property which is a direct theft of other people’s time, money and energy? Definately.

    I love a lot of these, very artistic! Great work…

    Don’t think too much about the simple ‘holy shit’ on red background though…I see a lot of crap like that around london that 12 year olds put out.

    Love that animation movie though!

    I absolutely love all of the Bansky… Its not enough to just throw something and hope people don’t get annoyed with it. Just like all art and design, you have to communicate a message and it has to be understood. Too abstract, and its pointless! Nice pics! =)

    the peice you labeled as “Walt Jabsco” is by 3Dom and Voyder (I think). Walt Jabsco looks like the guy whos flickr acount you took the photo from.

    Some of these are just amazing. So many of them (like most graffiti in real life) are blah. If you’re going to force your art on the public by ruining property, you’d better be good. Or else you should get IDIOT tattooed on your forehead or something. How bout picking up another hobby like guerilla gardening?

    I think the the MUTO grafiti animation is amazing especially in this after effects digital world…but couldn’t help but think “what kind of ego allows you to cover entire walls of other people’s art”

    The one labelled Josh Blair is actually by Titi Freak from Brazil.

    Adam Neate’s street work is definitely missing from this list – blows everyone else out of the water apart from, maybe, Banksy.

    You should do a spot Os Gêmeos I think these guys are some of the most forward thinking people in the industry. They’re out of São Paulo, Brazil you should also check out some of the reverse graffiti projects as well.

    I have to wonder how much time these people spend on these pieces. Some of them appear to have taken so much time, I’d rather think they’re murals (commissioned or not).

    On some of those pieces, the artist must have had to come back over a timeframe of several days to do the work. Because of how long it must take and how OBVIOUS it must be to the public that something’s going on (some of these works require a huge ladder), I’m thinking a large chunk of these graffiti murals are really done with permission by the property owner. If that’s the case, these things are more just murals than rebellious tagging.

    The artwork in some is amazing. Just doesn’t seem quite so… revolutionary.

    I agree with Kelly. Most of these are actually murals and not graffiti. Graffiti is usually a hit and run job where you’re lucky to have enough time to finish something small before the cops are on you. These full color, full building wall jobs must be either commissioned or done with the consent of the property owner.
