- 2010: we opened our eyes to this beautiful artistic current, Street Art, or Urban Art, or Graffiti, well art done into the street, illegally, most of the time, and legally.
- 2011: we decided to share the pictures we took, and the most convenient way we thought was to display it on a map, and here was born SAMCO V1 !
- 2013: some modifications had been done, aestetichally mostly, here was SAMCO V2.
- 2020: 3 years of pictures slept on hard drive, features in mind for a long time.... and a lockdown led to a complete re build of our way to add picture here, also new features, and finally 7500+ pictures added, artists, festivals, galleries... listed !

The categorization of Mural, Street Art and Graffiti is on our own appreciation, it does not reflect everyone's thought on that topic, we might have classified wrongly some of them.
Nearly 98% of pictures have been took by us, if you are an Artist, a Festival, a Gallery or an Event organizer and want to be displayed here, please feel free to contact us !
We are just diplaying pictures we took in the street, we do not endorse degradations or motivate them.
