Street art excites controversy. To some street art is graffiti, something unwanted, an attack on the urban fabric and their sense of safety within it. To others street art is a means of expression, of enlivening and humanising urban spaces, introducing humour, colour and passion.
Our streets, townscapes and parks are what can make or break urban living. As we all become more hemmed in by the tide of intense urbanisation, beauty, especially that imparted by street art, becomes more important.
