Ever since Tate called upon artists to create outdoor art pieces in 2008 in the Thames side of the gallery, street art gained its mainstream status, allowing urban artists like Bansky and Adam Neate to propel urban art into the popular culture. Even though urban art manifests itself in the form of graffiti and street art found in public spaces, many artists reproduce the theme and the aesthetic of such an art form on canvases so people can collect it and bring it in their homes. Using spray paint and mixed media such artists stay true to this art form through the images and ideas they are trying to convey in their artwork.
