Street Art as it is called is nothing more the modern century renegade artistic expression
Street art includes pictures, signatures, different symbols which are supposed to have a meaning behind them. An artist's mind is an endless cycle of ideas and expression, some of which are barely understood by him till it reaches its full expression in the form of art.

Words of protest, feelings of discontentment in the form of art held views on issues that artists did not agree with and are expressed through their work. They represent their perspective through ways that can capture the attention of the people who see it. So, that they don’t only get captivated by the beauty of it but also by the message behind it.
