When we talk about vandalism, as long as it doesn't involve actual vandals sacking cities, many people would agree that some acts of street art are funnier than they are criminal. And what about "culture jamming" and public activism? While acts of civil disobedience might include aspects with are technically a crime, should these hooligans be judged in the same light?

For all you legally minded readers, we at Bored Panda have collected this list of too-funny-to-be-illegal pranks and acts of "vandalism" by various street artists. From clever art installations to wall murals and graffitis - this list is full of illegal acts that are sure to make dull city streets just a tad bit brighter. If you think that some are funnier than others, then make your voice heard! Vote, or upload your own cool art images (or your "friend's" images) below.
