The street art usually tends to fit into the folds and cracks of the city that no one seems to care about; the in-between spaces. Numerous amounts of citizens have expressed discomfort towards the nature of street art as it not only demonstrates the destruction of private property, but it also promotes vandalism due to the government support.
