Grotesque Street Art by Roa

Belgian street artist Roa is trying to drag attention of the world to how many species become victims of hunting and polution nowadays. This year he traveled around the globe leaving his monocromatic depictions of animals all around Austria, Canada, Great Britain, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the US. All the murals are spray-painted. Roa’s street art might look disgusting, weird and grotesque, but after all it’s true – we try to ignore our furry neighbours while they have to deal with us and our dominance.

Green Graffiti by Anna Garforth

Anna Garforth, the artist from London, UK, has an unusual approach to a classic meaning of graffiti. Her street art pops up from living material.

People Interacting with Street Art by Julien Coquentin

Outstanding Street Art on Railings by Zebrating

Zebrating, a street art duo from Mannheim, Germany, creates an interesting perspective on the urban murals.
