For street artists, the world is their playground and the walls are their canvas. They see things differently, they perceive the world differently. It is amazing how they can turn the most boring of places into a worldwide attraction simply on the strength of their brush. Here are world famous artists from the City Walk in Dubai for the Dubai Walls Project:
