treet art is art, specifically visual art, developed in public spaces — that is, "in the streets" — though the term usually refers to unsanctioned art, as opposed to government sponsored initiatives. The term can include traditional graffiti artwork, sculpture, stencil graffiti, sticker art, wheatpasting and street poster art, video projection, art intervention, guerrilla art, and street installations. Typically, the term street art or the more specific post-graffiti is used to distinguish contemporary public-space artwork from territorial graffiti, vandalism, and corporate art.
Artists have challenged art by situating it in non-art contexts. ‘Street’ artists do not aspire to change the definition of an artwork, but rather to question the existing environment with its own language. They attempt to have their work communicate with everyday people about socially relevant themes in ways that are informed by esthetic values without being imprisoned by them. John Fekner defines street art as "all art on the street that’s not graffiti".

A beautiful combination of an old, weathered wall, a dull window that prevents looking inside and highly colourful murals from a fantasy world.
Best regards, Paul

Un bon choix d'angle pour mettre en valeur cette peinture murale colorée.
Merci pour le partage et bonne soirée.

This is sure a very colorful piece of art, well presented in an oblique line. The light shows sharp details of the work, bricks and window. The blue window makes an interesting contrast with the texture and color of the brickwork and this gets to my heart more than the artwork.

beautiful example of the street art,which makes the streets more interesting and lively.
I like your presentaion here-the side perspective captures really well the mural and part of the house.
Lovely colors,contrast and superbly captured textures of these old walls.
Have a nice day

Ciao Costantino,davvero originale questa foto,non è facile trovare tanti colori dalla tua Grecia sempre dipinta di bianco e blu..ehehe...una bella opportunita' colta al meglio,con dettagli precisissimi e colori molto brillanti,molto azzeccata anche la prospettiva diagonale.Buona giornata! Luciano

Vivid colors painted on the small wall, described the island scenery, Costantino.
There is fine clarity and contrast to the rest of the wall and window with its blue frame.
I agree about what you had written: Street art is art, and if kept well, can never moved (nor stolen or hidden).

Hi Costantino, lovely decoration of the house. I like such street art but i hate graffiti, it is just vandalism.

Hello dear Costantino,
Samos was my first introduction to Greece and it was a good one, although I only went to Pythagorio and Vathy. Good street art with vibrant color and impeccable sharpness and nice framing, with the choice of a vertical format perfect for illustrating this fine piece of artwork. Tfs!

Street artwork with message! It looks like you have some bold vibrant colors on the wall there - credit to your great eyes as this keeps grabbing my attention too with its strong highlights. I love the depth, perspective and the diagonal touch with nice window framing there. An excellent everyday scene and your awareness so well realised and shot, Congrats

Le bleu foncé de cette fenêtre crée un bon contraste avec les autres teintes présentes sur cette façade.

Una scna carina e deliziosa. Mi piacciono molto i colori vividi e le line diagonal. Hai scelto bene il taglio verticale e gestito bene la luce ed ombra qui.
Grazie per la condivisione e ti auguro una bellissima giornata
