The best street art comes in many forms, from urban graffiti styles to elaborate murals, stencil work and even guerrilla gardening and 'yarn bombing'. Stunning pieces can be found in all kinds of environments, from urban centres to wastelands, and they can be bold and thought-provoking or fun and irreverent. 

Below, we've gathered together some of the work of our favourite street artists. You'll probably find some talent you already know but perhaps also some less-known artists that you don't. The artists' motivation ranges from simply brightening up their neighbourhoods to making political statements. But whatever their aims may be, the art that's been produced is inspirational.
