What is street art?

Street art has become a popular way for artists to showcase their work, and it’s also become one of the most accessible forms of art out there. It’s easy to find examples of street art in your neighborhood, and they can be fun to discover while you’re on vacation!

Street installations

Street installations are a type of street art that takes over public spaces. They’re temporary and often interactive, which means that you can interact with them in some way. Some installations even have specific purposes, like protesting something or raising awareness about a certain issue. If you’ve ever seen a large group of people standing around looking at a mural on the side of a building, it’s probably because they were staring at an installation!

Street art styles vary from region to region

Street art styles vary from region to region. The location of the artwork and the physical characteristics of the surrounding area can have an effect on what materials are used and how they’re used. For example, street art created in a highly urbanized area may use spray paint cans, whereas street artists in rural communities might be more likely to use acrylic paints since they are much easier to clean up if something spills or equipment malfunctions.

Street art styles can also be influenced by local climate and architecture. For example, since rain is not uncommon in Seattle, street artists here tend to work more quickly than their counterparts who live somewhere that doesn’t experience as much rain.

An artistic experience in a common space

It’s not the same as putting a painting on the wall of your living room, because street art has to work within the context of urban life and its inherent challenges. Street artists must make their work accessible, respond to what already exists around them, and navigate the realities of their environments in order for their work to have meaning or value.

Street art only became popularised during the 1960s when Andy Warhol introduced his now iconic “Campbell’s Soup Cans” series into galleries across America. As more people began attending galleries and museums as a part of daily life (rather than just special occasions), they noticed how much they enjoyed seeing masterpieces by famous artists like da Vinci hanging on museum walls—but also thought about all those other pieces out there that were either too expensive or simply couldn’t be purchased by anyone except those who could afford them: namely works by lesser known but equally talented painters who worked outside traditional institutions like museums due instead making money through commissioned commissions such as murals inside businesses or even graffiti tags spray-painted across city walls!
