Urban art is a style of art that relates to cities and city life and is often created by artists who live in or have a passion for the city.
Urban art combines street art and graffiti and is often used to summarize all visual art forms arising in urban areas. It is inspired by urban architecture among many things and tells a story about urban lifestyle.
