Superhero graffiti stands as old as comics themselves, and it keeps getting better with age. Now that graffiti is global, viewing it takes a whole new level. One of the best ways to pay tribute to your favorite comic can be spray-painting it on a wall, barn, or even a mobile vehicle.
Armed with little more than a can of paint, an empty wall, and a rebellious streak, street artists leave behind remarkable shading, elegant lines, and a deep appreciation for our favorite heroes and villains. Similar to the greatest graffiti illustrators of the past, those of today still occasionally go unknown, just like the identities of the superheroes they honor.
Here’s a look at some of the best super hero graffiti we found around the world.
