Street art isn't just something that occurs from time to time, when young rule-breakers manage to create art while managing to avoid to police. No, street art is a massive part of community identity, political activism, and self expression.
Every day, street artists attempt to transform another urban surface into a vehicle for their work, and this time, we're focusing on stairs. These are beautifully painted stairs from around the world, from Philadelphia to Barcelona, all the way to Seoul. It's incredible what these artists have achieved with such a common canvas is absolutely breathtaking. See the works of urban art below.
