Most street art - while beautiful - conjures up images of design splashed around a concrete jungle and for many people is still often falsely associated with vandalism. Typically, the visual art that occupies public spaces makes no use of the plant life (if there is any) around it, or has very little with interaction it.

These following artists from around the world combined their urban masterpieces with an unexpected element: greenery. Instead of painting over the ivy on the wall, the drawings incorporated the leaves in their 3D art, and the results are stunning!
