During the late 60’s, through writers like Cornbread and Cool Earl, a lively art movement arose in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The phenomenon of street art took on very quickly in New York City as well. It became a movement of duty, where colors, designs and names had were decorating buildings, walls, streets, and underground tunnels. Street art has gained its popularity during the graffiti art revolution of the early 1980s. It has become one of the most popular but also nebulous genre of art. I’d love to call it a phenomenon that escapes time and space, and that fills the world. Through the wide variety of styles and perspectives, artists created many revolutionary and evolutionary graffitis. Street art recently flourished in countries such as Egypt, Libya and Tunisia. People are now so fascinated with street art that they travel through city streets all over the world to explore this popular and lively art movement. This artistic phenomenon can be in the form of paintings, mosaic tiles, carvings and many more. Outdoor graffiti murals are always easy to depict and indoor ceilings too, so why not add floor art designs? It’s a third dimensional world where the roads and sidewalks can be transformed into canvases with a wide range of angles. Discover the most inspirational floor art ideas and mediums.
