Street Art: falling cities last resort?

Some urban spaces cause more problems than others. Areas that were once new eventually lose the interest of the public, left to decay and serve as a reminder of what once was – what once was beautiful and great. Enter street art. Street art takes what is old and decrepit and adds spice by using art as the medium.

Here are 10 awe-inspiring examples from around the globe of forgotten urban areas transformed by street art, demonstrating that many cities can be brought back to life with just a splash of creativity.
