Innovation on a daily basis

Street Art and Graffiti are the most well-known parts of Urban art which are recognized by many people. More in detail, Street art refers to the designs created on city walls by artists who in many cases have years of experience creating impressive designs. Usually, these designs are graffiti but in recent years many artists have also written on walls creating word art.  Many artists create paintings which are inspired by graffiti from the street walls. Street art mainly focuses on the image and culture of each area, often including a political or social dimension.  Urban artists intent to make the viewer think about the messages which their work conveys, beautifying the space and giving it a character.  One characteristic of Street Art is that the works are often deleted and replaced, so the hotspots often change.  Artists involved in street art know that their works are renewed and are always ready for new creations. Consequently, innovative mindset around these artists and constant changing is everyday pattern.

A contemporary, creative form of verbalizing political and social messages

Urban Art also has to do with any artistic activity that draws inspiration either from the architecture or the way of life of a city.  At the same time, urban art includes many artists, who usually create their works with traditional means such as canvas and the themes they paint have to do with the political situation of the place and the cultural life of the city.  In many cases, famous artists who exhibit in major museums of contemporary art and galleries belong to urban art.

It seems that urban art includes both the expression of artists in public spaces, in various ways as we saw above, and with the inspiration of others from the street art itself, the way of life of the city or from the city itself.  In a society that is constantly changing and evolving, the urban artists give color the grey street life.
