10 Awesome and Bizarre Examples of Street Art

You don't have to go to a world-famous art gallery to see some examples of some amazing artwork. Walk through the tunnels or streets of any major city in the world, and you are likely to see a random sampling of some truly amazing art by some talented but underappreciated artists working in the shadows.

Here are just 10 examples of some awesome and bizarre examples of street art from around the world:

Eduardo Relero created this piece, entitled "Philosophical Drift," in Arles, France. Just try walking across this floor without feeling like you will fall through!

The artist Iemza created this untitled piece in Reims, France. The haunting face turns a blighted building into a moving piece of art.

You can find art in even the most unexpected places. An unknown artist created this not-so-inviting toilet in a public location in Germany. Imagine sitting down to this!

Art allows us to free ourselves. This sculpture created by Zenos Frudakis explores that concept a bit more literally.

Artists Jurgen and Katja von Hof give passersby a glimpse into what life might be like in one home in Germany.

This sculpture, "Long-Term Parking," uses over 60 automobiles and over 40,000 pounds of concrete. It stands 60 feet high in Jouy-en-Josas, France.

This beautiful painting can be found on the side of a building in New York. Imagine seeing this on your morning stroll to work....

Sidewalk artists create some truly amazing images. This one from artist Eduardo Relero in Guadalajara, Mexico, seems to come to life right off the pavement.

Art and nature become one in this creation by the artist Vinchen in Columbus, Ohio. It explores the beauty and the impermanence of both nature and art.

Even an act of crafting can be revolutionary. This old Volkswagen got the yarn bomb treatment in Denmark, creating a new piece of art that's really in spirit with the original era of the car.

There are countless more examples of amazing, unique, and interesting art on streets around the world. Artists are finding ways to imbue a little beauty into the everyday or to add a little quirk to the mundane. As Jean Michele Basquiat showed the world, today's street artist can become history's celebrated artist.
