23 Examples of Street Art with a Powerful Message
Street art has come a long way in the last several years. Once viewed as ‘vandalism’, graffiti art has evolved into a rich and diverse art form that can be found in cities around the world. It’s not just about graffiti anymore, street art can come in many forms including murals, wheat-pasted posters, sculptures, stickers, installations, and more. Many artists use this form as a means to convey a message to the public, often addressing social and political issues.
We’ve pulled together some of our favorite pieces from Instagram that share a powerful message.
The Revolution Evolves now lives on Allen and Stanton! If there is ever a time for this piece to be loud and proud in public it's now. We have power, let's take it back: redirect our $ to companies that don't profit from the destruction of our planet, grow our own food, support immigrants and women, care for the homeless, listen, empathize and volunteer. We gotta find that place where we can give from and not only care more for others, but ourselves as well. There's an awakening happening amongst us. We are expanding our abilities to love and that is the reason we are facing all this hatred and fearmongering- so we can learn how to love more deeply, more powerfully, and more inclusively. Thank you so much to @outlaw_arts and @criticalmassive for organizing the wall and all of the logistics! Also some major love to the folks over at @conartistnyc for offering up your space as home base for the supplies and my frozen fingers. Super grateful to be able to share my work and ideas with the world. 🙏🏽✊🏽 #fistsupfightback #resist
