We kick off this new year with a retrospective featuring the most popular street art pieces from 2015. As usual this ranking is generated solely by our users and the pages you visited.

With little to no surprise, Banksy once again takes the crown with a very powerful piece that was painted in Gaza, Palestine last February. The elusive British artist was very active this year with his uber popular Dismaland exhibition and more recently, brand new pieces which popped up in the Jungle of Calais as a tribute to the Syrian refugees.

The United Kingdom also grabs the second spot with our buddy Mobstr and his brilliant evolving piece “The Curious Frontier Of Red” which gave us a big smile back in June. Hula aka Sean Yoro and his surfboard are coming third with an innovative way to paint and integrate the water into his artworks.
