With the year coming to an end, we decided to publish eight of our favorite photos from our street art gallery for readers to enjoy. While some of these artworks may still be found, many have been lost, moved or painted over. Unlike works of art found inside great museums, these artists and their works enjoy far less permanence but our camera has preserved them here.

New York Yankees fans enjoyed viewing a custom Toyota Hybrid car at the New York Auto Show this year. Although very different from the other photos shown here, we’ve never seen this car before & aren’t sure where it ended up. Perhaps in a warehouse, showroom or repainted. From street art, to body art & commercial art, images provide an endless supply of creativity to be viewed, while it lasts.
