Art - Street Art


What is street art?

Street art is art that is created in a public place and may only be temporary.

There are lots of different types of street art such as:

  • Graffiti - often writing or images which are sprayed onto walls or other public areas
  • Stencil graffiti - similar to graffiti but stencils are used to recreate an image
  • Art installations - these could include local art or sculpture trails
  • Street poster art - posters which are displayed in a public place
  • Video projections - videos or images are projected onto buildings

Next time you're out in your local area, see what you can spot.

Famous street artists

Famous street artists include:

  • Banksy
  • Keith Haring


Banksy is a famous, but anonymous, British graffiti artist - he keeps his identity a secret.

He produces pieces of work that pop up in public places, eg on the walls of buildings.

A lot of his art is done using stencils, which people can easily recognise.

You can see some examples of Banksy's work below.

Keith Haring

Keith Haring is famous for creating street art and sculptures using bold, bright colours.

These have thick outlines and cartoon-style characters such as barking dogs, crawling babies and spaceships.

In the following video, from the 'Art Ninja' series, watch how Art Ninja makes an alien picture using Keith Haring as inspiration.
