Here are examples of artists that attempt to live up to Banksy’s dream to get the art off the walls and start melting into the streets.

The famous and anonymous street artist and political activist “Banksy” said that he pines for a city that is more blended into its street art culture. He wants one that “feels like a party where everyone was invited, not just the estate agents and barons of big business. Imagine a city like that and stop leaning against the wall – it’s wet.”

This is sweet, but mannequin or not, this guy would get severally accosted in New York City for taking up that much sidewalk.

Its tough being a city lawyer. This guy just lost his head-case. Badom *miss*

This is the kind of uplifting piece that would go great in a park or around a koi pond.
