Google announced Tuesday that it's looking to preserve some of the popular street art seen
around the world through its new Street Art Project put together by the
Google Cultural Institute and "street art experts."
The project has brought to the Internet more than 5,000 images and roughly 100 special exhibitions on artists,
places, and themes. Users can sift through the Street Art Project site and check out the history of the New York graffiti scene; murals
in South America; street art stickers, and much more.

Cabaio’s stencil art incorporates a mix of abstract imagery and social
commentary, as seen in this painting located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Part of Cabaio's technique is to build up layers of images to create a perception of depth.
