Over the years, graffiti has evolved from annoying vandalism into an amazing form of street art.
I especially love when artists incorporate the urban surroundings into their incredible creations. They're able to transform the mundane into fascinating displays that inspire all those who witness them.
The best part is that the possibilities are endless as long as you have the creativity to see them. And people definitely do see them — from cracks in walls to open windows inside derelict homes, these photos from around the world show that where there's a will, there's a way to create some seriously impressive street art.
