Created by the group Artolution, each piece is designed with purpose — to break down socially, culturally and politically created barriers.
Wherever a mural goes up, it focuses on local issues and engages residents. This often involves kids and local art initiatives.
Artolution was founded in 2009. It reaches around the globe, especially to poor communities and groups exposed to conflict.
But since the founders are from the U.S., their work can be seen in various U.S. cities. Projects in the U.S. have "bridged" the gap between varying socio-economic neighborhoods and helped kids get back to normal life after juvenile dentention.
