Street Art Comes Alive! (20 pics + video)

South African artist Robin Rhode takes street art to a whole new level by adding in performances. Using everyday materials like chalk, charcoal or paint, he conjures up creative stories and then adds in actors to his “plays.” What starts out as a simple drawing of figures and shapes, magically transforms itself into a clever piece of performance street art!

Most interestingly, Rhode often returns to his native South Africa, creating pieces on the streets of Johannesburg that address social issues like poverty and inequality.
