Shepard Fairey

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.

This photograph shows a detail of a Shepard Fairey mural done in Malaga, Spain.
