It has also served as inspiration for artists who have grown up with the movies and ultimately develop their own artistic take, not always it has to be said in a strictly legal manner.

Here is a brief whistle stop tour of the coolest Star Wars graffiti we could find.
Sep 14, 2010 Hailing from the United Kingdom (Newcastle to be exact), street artist Mobstr employs a combination of stencils and cheeky quips to challenge the way we view public space. Whether he’s co-opting billboards, battling the local authorities or just having a little fun, Mobstr’s work is sure to bring a grin to any fan of street art. Enjoy a sample of his terrific work below and be sure to check out his FLICKR PAGE for more provocative work. What is public space and why do you work in it?
South African artist Robin Rhode takes street art to a whole new level by adding in performances. Using everyday materials like chalk, charcoal or paint, he conjures up creative stories and then adds in actors to his "plays." What starts out as a simple drawing of figures and shapes, magically transforms itself into a clever piece of performance street art! Most interestingly, Rhode often returns to his native South Africa, creating pieces on the streets of Johannesburg that address social issues like poverty and inequality. Watch this video to get to know the artist. Source: Perry Rubenstein Gallery
