Engaged street art is a delicate area in which many artists of the genre have made their specialty.

Graffiti appeared in the United States in the 1970s in the form of tags and signatures of all kinds and graffiti, mainly used as a means of expression. Arrived more or less discreetly in Europe, it found its place there in the early 1980s. The walls of specific neighborhoods as well as subways and even train cars were used as supports.
