Small Street Art is Beautiful – 25 Cool Stickers and Paste-Ups!

There are many graffiti artists who prefer wheat paste and paper to spray cans and respirator masks. In fact, the most famous and recognized graffiti artists on the planet are “stickers” rather than “sprayers”(both Banksy and Fairey quickly learning how to make a sticker into high concept art with their provocative paste-up masterpieces.) Now, the purists in the graffiti community may argue that printing cool stickers or large-scale photo-reproductions of work is a far cry from the skill of the spray-can artist, but I would argue that like anything else, it’s in the idea and execution that makes something a true work of art.

The following pieces are a testament to this fact and also prove that great street art doesn’t need to cover an entire wall or side of a building. These 25 cool stickers and small paste-ups are mini-masterpieces in their own right and deserve to be judged in the same arena as the biggest and most impressive full-wall pieces.

Please enjoy these super-cool stickers and paste-ups:
