“Street Art – the next space race” podcast

Street artists, advertising agencies and the authorities are in the middle of a space race.

It’s a lot less about little green men and much more about spray paint and stencils. But the stakes are still sky high. Artists are busy commandeering as many city surfaces as their paints will allow, authorities are trying to neutralise the threat, while advertising agencies are keen to clone the potency of hand painted art.

Edwina Stott steps into her space suit to find out what the future holds for street art.

Guests include;  Ben Eine - street artist, Alison Young - Francine V. McNiff Professor of Criminology in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne, Dr Cameron McAuliffe - Senior Lecturer in Urban Geography and Human Studies, Western Sydney University and others

100 Creative Street Art images

The attitude that art should be seen only in galleries is on its way out. This huge collection of creative street art will show you that city is probably the best canvas! Every wall, fence or column could be turned into an art piece. It brings smiles and raises eyebrows. It is closer to people than the best painting or installation shown in a art gallery. However, at the same time, bad street art can ruin a very nice downtown building making all neighborhoods seem run-down and uninviting. That’s why there will always be a debate whether it’s art or vandalism. Now take a look at these 100 examples of creative street art. How can something so beautiful and creative be a crime?
