25 Powerful Pieces Of Street Art That Tell The Painful Truth

Published 5 years ago

The world is not in a good shape, and these street artist are here to say it. Using the urban walls as their canvas, ROA, Blu, Banksy and many others are reaching out to the masses. It’s a good tool to alert a widespread audience. It is estimated that more than half the people in the world are living in urban areas. In Asia, many city agglomerations (Osaka, Manila, Jakarta, Seul and so on) reach over 20 million in population and are slated to cross 40 million in the near future. The message is thus delivered to a wide audience and is hard to ignore due to its usually jarring appearance.

And the people do have things to worry about. Climate change is only denied by the most recalcitrant of critics. Water pollution is getting over a million people a year ill in India and air pollution is causing around a million premature deaths in China per year. The acidification of oceans (due to high CO2 content) is threatening our food supply (as well an sea animals in general(, and acid rain has a similar affects on soil. Plants also suffer from smog and tropospheric ozone it contains – and O3 is a troublemaker by itself while it remains at ground level, causing all sorts of toxic reaction with other materials. And, of course, there’s the urbanization’s impact on forests and nature, animal rights violations in fur and meat industry, and so forth.

Small wonder that these people take up the spray can.
