Ephemeral urban art as expression of collective thought stream is a source of community projects in which citizens can retrieve a "City experience".
The profusion of different manifestations of ephemeral art in cities around the world since the beginning of the 21st century is having consequences on urban space both locally and globally. One of them is the transformation of the urban landscape, which is considered a visible stage in urban regeneration projects. In addition to the physical transformation there are also changes in the urban dynamics, the effects of the interventions have consequences beyond the change of image of the urban space. The local or even global socio-economic effects of the transformations linked to the ephemeral art are increasingly evident.
This article relates the origin and development of different urban artistic manifestations and reflects on their consequences for urban life as a tool for physical and social transformation.
