Street art is gradually becoming more and more prevalent and acceptable as an art form. This blog post is all about street artist that have decorated public outdoor steps.
These unexpected mosaics, designs and portraits on a surfaces we often take for granted are transformed into tourist hot spots for their photo opp potential, their beauty and creativity, and in some cases because of who painted them!
They may seem like random splashes of paint to someone actually climbing those steps, but someone looking at them from below will see the artist’s full vision. Many of these pieces were a community effort, which goes to show how far street art has actually come.
