Street art that makes road crossings and paths alive The Canadian artist Peter Gibson, more known as “Roadsworth”, has given the streets of Montreal an artistic touch using spray painting. He turns pedestrian crossings into giant shoe prints, writes eye catching messages on paths and making the end of the lines that divides the paths look like plugs. He was motivated to make “Pedestrian street art” ,as he called it, because he wanted more bike paths, and he also questioned the car culture.
Walking in the streets of Berlin you might have seen this piece of art on one of the fences, or maybe you haven’t? It can be hard to spot it because it’s “hidden” in a clever way. You have to stand in a special angle to view this black and white portrait because it’s invisible if you stare at the fence from the front. The talented artist behind this work is Mentalgassi , and to create it he had to wheatpaste it on the side bars of this metal fence. A lot of other street art can be seen in Berlin as well, like colorful graffitis of famous movie roles. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

Graffiti with the use of Props – Illusion - The Most Amazing Creations in Art, Photography, Design, Technology and Video.Street artist Michael Aaron Williams has a unique graffiti style that includes the use of props such as flowers, paper airplanes, toy sail boats, and more. Notes from the artist’s statement: Some of the pieces I create are made for a gallery and some for the street in which the placement is necessary to add to the thematic meaning of the piece. Making something that has its own natural lifespan is very interesting to me. Because the paintings are of people on the street I also put them on the street where they are exposed to that which can destroy them. I want the pieces to have hope, so I dont glue them to the wall I simply tape them so that the viewer can take them down and hopefully take them home.
The Public Space Inspires My Creativity – Illusion - The Most Amazing Creations in Art, Photography, Design, Technology and Video.It is noticeable the fine art influence in Specter ‘s street art. Notes from the artist’s statement: Since 1995 I have used the urban situation as a primary destination for my creative concepts through installations that merge with abandoned buildings and forgotten environments. This obsession with art in public spaces is a result of being introduced to the fine arts through graffiti, viewing all public space as potential inspiration and location for my creativity.
