Compelling Street Art Sheds Light On Sad Truths About The World

By

While graffiti often gets a bad rap, spray paint isn't just used to deface public property.

Some artists believe in using their artistic abilities for good, and a few of them transformed blank buildings into incredible masterpieces that double as billboards promoting social change.

We recently came across a series of street art highlighting graffiti artists who use their artwork to spread powerful messages about environmental and societal issues.

These brutally honest murals address everything from global warming and animal cruelty to the evils of urbanization, and they remind us we all need to wake up and start working toward making a change.

Take a look at the photos below to see street art murals that shed some light about the true state of the world.
