When President Barack Obama had his original campaign poster created he turned to street artist Sheperd Fairey. Graffiti and Street Art are so much more than an underground movement, but rather an art form that is considered rooted in mathematics, and ancient cultures. Learn about graffiti art styles, artists that have helped the movement spread to the rest of the world, and consider its geographic and social backgrounds.
