One could say that the term street art is just a glorified name for graffiti and perhaps that is the case but then again we are all entitled to our own opinions. I wanted to do a blog post about this subject as there is a lot of street art here in Tel Aviv and some of it is rather good. A few of the examples of graffiti/street art is of a political nature and I will not include these here. It may be said that Banksy, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banksy the anonymous England based graffiti artist, political activist has had a huge impact and elevated this rather dubious art form into dizzying heights. To this effect, this form of graffiti/street art appears to have become more widely acceptable.
