Top 5 Street Artist In the World

Street artistry has been one of the most popular art forms in the last 50 years. Nothing compares to the style,humor, wit, and swagger of this art form. This art form is classified as street art because it is typically displayed on unsanctioned pieces of property in public places("the streets"). Here are the top 5 street artist in the world.


PHLEGM
ORIGIN: UK
PHLEGMCOMICS.COM

Phlegm is the best illustrative artist in street art hands down. His imaginative and refreshing art is something you would see in a comic book or the movie Nightmare Before Christmas. Truly one of the best street artist living or dead.



ZILDA
FRANCE
FLICKR.COM/ZILDA

Zilda has become one of my favorite artists recently. His artistic depictions of Italian movies and classical themes are brilliant and some of the coolest imagery I have ever seen.





BLU
FRANCE
BLUBLU.ORG

Simply put, if you are looking for politically charged imagery with thought provoking meaning then Blu is the Zeus of that.



JR
FRANCE
JR-ART.NET

JR is masterful. Truly some of the most profound and beautifully done artwork I have ever laid my eyes on. From a technical standpoint he is the best of the list.



BANKSY
UK
BANKSY.CO.UK

This was a close race between JR and Banksy. In a world where being well known as a street artist is a "no no" Banksy has still managed to stay mysterious. This is the most popular street artist in the world and his work is witty, humorous, political and beautiful.
