While many of the antecedents of our modern Street Art movement can be traced to the 1960's, the last 10 years have provided a perfect storm of demographics, cultural shifting, and technology to create a veritable explosion of Street Art in cities and towns globally. While it is still carefully debated, discussed, and in a state of rapid evolution, we're taking a look back at Street Art this decade and picking some of the moments that influenced its direction.

REVS Moves to Sculpture
1 of 11
Fiercely reclusive Street Artist REVS surprises everyone following his arrest in 2000 by abandoning his practice of creating monumental roller tags on walls and instead makes dozens of metal sculptures. He installs them, mostly legally, around New York, including many in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg, known for being an epicenter of Street Art growth in the early 2000s. REVS and his buddy COST are pointed to as inspiration by many of a new generation of Street Artists.
