Over the past decade, artists have been reclaiming their cities, redecorating their urban environments and redefining the very notion of contemporary art. On abandoned warehouses and derelict buildings, train tracks and highways throughout the world, through the cracks of graffiti sprayed walls, street art has emerged as a global movement, as artists move beyond the letter towards the image.
