40 Stunning and Creative Graffiti Artworks

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.

    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.

    I really enjoyed some of banksy’s work around here in New Orleans.

    “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”
