The street art fulfils many functions in the city space. Murals presenting people historically related to the city provide education and honour, they also honour outstanding individuals for their work and activity. Graffiti or inscriptions on the walls are a voice in the public debate, an expression of opposition to or approval for the existing situation. The street art is socially engaged, applies simple allegories and blunt expressions. It frequently originates spontaneously, under the effect of strong emotions. The street artist performances are, in a way, tattoos on the urban tissue. large-size, extremely colourful images moving art from galleries to streets allow to observe the city rhythm, present its history and development over years. The works inspired by the art of Waldemar Świerzy, an outstanding Polish poster artist (a mural presenting John Baildon, the author: Camej, the corner of Gliwicka and Bocheńskiego streets), by Jean Giraud’s illustrations (a mural painted on the occasion of Intel Extreme Masters games, the author: Mona Tusz, 53. 1 Maja street), or the works of local Janów Group (Kutz on a pony, the author: Camej, 3, Wypoczynkowa street) may be seen in Katowice streets. The first examples of wall painting appeared in our city many years ago, but only due to the committment of the artists, invited to participate in the first edition of Katowice Street Art Festival, the city space was filled with murals. Subsequent editions of this event, taking place for a decade, has led to a trend of the street art in Katowice. Because of the festival the capital of the Upper Silesia was visited by e.g. Daniel Sparkes, Aryz, Escrif, Etam Crew, MCity, and many others. Furthermore, a lot of projects - independent of the festival - were launched.
