Urban street artwork is often ignored as a serious style of creativity. However you would be surprised the amount of skill required to construct such abstract creations within the confines of any cityscape. Not to mention the gruesome legal risks posed in these activities.

Below is my insane collection of 41 creative new-age spray tags and artwork found in major cities all around the world. Urban youth has built this trend over decades and the ball continues rolling to this day. There are some convoluted techniques required to pull off this style of expression. But fortunately this gallery should quench the thirst of any curious artists!
