Paper cut-out, 24th St.

Street art is an artistic form inspired or evolved from the graffiti movement in public art. San Francisco has many vibrant, amazing murals, abundant graffiti that ranges from super-arty to gangs or kids tagging. Street art is considered to be more deliberate and controlled. One of its aspects is to appreciate how a work installed on a public street changes over time or is modified by others as well as how it weathers away.
