Brent De Bleser shares aerial footage of the world's largest outdoor mural in Klepp, a town on the southwestern coast of Norway. The large scale painting by artists Ella & Pitr, produced (incredibly) in just four days, spans across a building's rooftop.  While the title of "world's largest mural" is difficult to confer precisely, this one is considered a legitimate contender.  As you watch this amazing video, you will see that the best way this particular work of art can be appreciated is from a bird's eye view.

The strangest sight in the great western USA state of Nevada isn't actually in Las Vegas, as you might expect.  Rather it's a spot in the desert called International Car Forest of the Last Church, where abandoned cars have been "planted" into the ground in various orientations and covered in graffiti.  Located in Goldfield, NV these "sculptures" are the work of some very creative modern artists.  Contributor 60 Seconds filmed the ICF with a drone to prove that this actually exists!

Top contributor AerialRhianna created this epic drone video of an old abandoned mill in rural Oregon in the northwestern USA.  The mill has become something of a studio for graffiti artists wishing to practice their trade in a serene and secluded environment of the Pacific Northwest wilderness.  This highly cinematic video of the mill and a young female artist who uses it as her canvas is spectacular.  The site is located near Veronia, in the far northwestern corner of the state.

The state of South Australia is a major grain producer, the vast majority of which is exported.  That's why the Port of Adelaide is one of the biggest grain ports in the world, and why storage silos are a common sight across the state.  As you'll see in this drone video from Eye Fly Drones, these silos aren't just for storing wheat and barley.  Noted muralist and graffiti artist Guido van Helten used one of these silos for a mural, which makes for a stunning visual against the great plain which covers much of SA.

While vandalism and graffiti don't always go together, this may be the first case in history of using graffiti to prevent vandalism.  An abandoned housing development near Hull in Northern England was turned over the urban artists of the UK as a way to keep out those with less sociable intentions.  The result is what you see in this amazing drone video by contributor Christopher Fenton, which brilliantly captures the visual impact of turning abandoned housing stock into art.
