You are walking on the street and suddenly see an unexpected burst of color and expression in a public space. What you are witnessing is street art, not to be confused with graffiti, and can range from a curious oddity to an image that makes a strong statement. Admission is free as street art is not confined to a gallery, but rather uses the outside world as a canvas to house murals, stencils and paintings. Take a digital tour through nine impressive examples of public art, and if you are interested in seeing more examples of street art, visit Google's Street Art Project
