One of the coolest parts about graffiti art is the fact that you don't have to go to a gallery to view it and you don't bid on it at an auction--you see it while you're walking down the street. The sidewalks themselves become the galleries, which is a pretty cool concept. But, more and more you've probably seen art by your favorite graffiti artists appearing on tanks at your favorite stores and pillows at your friends' apartments. Still, this work lives wherever you do (even on your record shelf), and that is awesome.
We've pulled together our favorite NYC street artists whose rad images and sayings appear on stuff you can buy and bring with you every where you go. Check them out now in the gallery and comment below with your favorites!
