Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. The term gained popularity during the graffiti art boom of the early 1980s and continues to be applied to subsequent incarnations. Stencil graffiti, wheatpasted poster art or sticker art, and street installation or sculpture are common forms of modern street art. Video projection, yarn bombing and Lock On sculpture became popularized at the turn of the 21st century.

Some dope work here from the crew, who relocated to Russia earlier this year after being fined $1,700, which in Belarus is a lot more than it is here in UK! It doesn't seem like it will hurt them too badly though, based on the fact that Snoop released some embroidered clothing and accessories which HoodGraff designed! Check out Design You Trust for more from them!

Rukkit is a Thai street artist based in Bangkok. His works are mainly composed of animals painted in a unique way. Pixelised is the only word that came to my mind to describe it but it is even more complex and stunning than that. Yeah... Rukkit's works are unique.

Andre Ruiz de Freitas aka. DecoLife is an autodidact street artist from Aluminio-Sao Paulo Brazil, born in 1990. He does not paint protesting or against anything like most part of the street artists, Decolife paints only with love for art, bringing colors and life everywhere that took inspiration from dreams, nature, places, music and different culture acquired from his trips.

"I’ve been drawing since I was a little kid. from the papers to walls I wanted the people who’re rushing from one place to another in the city to stop for a moment and discover their reflections in my works on the walls, also wanted to bring colors and life to simple houses in the country side of Sao-Paulo Brazil. What is essential to me in life is that everything I do and draw makes me happy.” DecoLife

London

 

Thefollowing works are from Timisoara (Romania) where DecoLife was for a trip last year.
