It is true that art comes in various forms. Street art though is misanderstood by many people. In this article we’re going to try to prove that street art can, in fact, be extremely impressive and creative by taking a look of some lovely staircases that were transformed into wonderful pieces of art. Let’s get this started!
1. 16th Avenue Tiled Steps, San Francisco
This one, as you can see from the title, is made out of tiles. I just love how the colours and pieces have sequence while it is an abstract form of art.
2. Philadelphia Museum of Art
There is no wonder why they chose Salvador Dali to illustrate at the stairs of an Art Museum.
3. Valparaiso, Chile
I like the way the artist paid attention to the shading part of his work. I think it has the essence of vividness.
4. Angers, France
What do we have here? Origami, an interesting way of decorating a staircase, right?
5. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Brasil actually does have a lot of colourful street art. Here we have another staircase made of tiles in colours that represent the colours of the country’s flag.
6. Beirut, Lebanon
Made out of paint, colourful, in geometric style with triangles and squares. Probably my favourite at this point.
7. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
You can actually see the wrinkles and facial hair of the person illustrated, this is trully a masterpiece!
8. Morlaix, France
From what I see this was made using spray technic, the most common way we tend to see in art street.
To fully appreciate them you have to look them from a certain point of view, otherwise, from above they would look like colourful splashes. Street art is a thing, because they transform our industrial and grey public spaces in a stylish way to make them look beautiful.
