Hand-Embellished/ HPM Graffiti Artwork & Street Art

Hand-Embellished & Hand Painted Multiples (HPM) Graffiti Artwork & Street Art. Some artists may use "smart vandalism" as a way to raise awareness of social and political issues, whereas other artists use urban space as an opportunity to display personal artwork. Artists may also appreciate the challenges and risks that are associated with installing illicit artwork in public places. A common motive is that creating art in a format that utilizes public space allows artists who may otherwise feel disenfranchised to reach a much broader audience than other styles or galleries would allow.
