Over the last year or so, there's been a rise in really clever street art in places all over the world. Today, we've rounded up 10 of the best (plus 2 extra we had to throw in). From the amazing freehand graffiti piece by Bart Smeets of a shark trapped inside a column to Be Free's whimsical stencil of a young girl doodling on the streets, these all stood out both for their uniqueness and for the artists' smart and thoughtful approach and execution. Who isn't blown away by Sokram's painting of a huge snake slithering through the windows and door of an old house? Street art has never been more exciting!
