What is Street Art?

Street art is art, specifically visual art, developed for public spaces. It can be on a wall, pathway, road, trash-bin, streetlamp, etc. The term can include traditional graffiti artwork, murals, sculptures, stencil graffiti, sticker art, wheatpasting and street poster art, video projection, art intervention, guerrilla art, flash mobbing and street installations.

For the purposes of the StART program, “Street Art” can include traditional graffiti artwork, murals and stencil graffiti. Graffiti art is a legal and acceptable form of street art and is differentiated from “tagging” which is generally characterized by writing and an act of vandalism. The City of Toronto defines Graffiti Art as “markings made or affixed to properties that are approved by the property owner or occupant, where the markings aesthetically enhance the surface they cover and the general surroundings, having regard to the community character and standards.” Click here to download the by-law (PDF).

StART (formally known as the Graffiti Transformation Program) originated out of the Graffiti Management Plan and is currently administered by the Public Realm Section of the Transportation Services Division at the City of Toronto.
