Street in the public space, as the area belonging to everybody, comes out as the most important place where the pulse of the city is thrown. The heterogeneous structure that emerges with urbanization comes to the forefront with the multitude of voices it creates and is the voice of the discourse of the individual's living space. Public spaces and frame Political structure have shaped from past to the present-day in public space in the context of social relationships. The street art, which has positioned the street as a public space in the center, but with the timeframe of the freedom of expression of its own field, has existed directly in this area. The street art that transcends the boundaries and becomes widespread continues to show its diversity of working examples in different disciplines today and forms a space for the formation of new discourses together with elements belonging to the street. The use of ceramic materials in the public space, on the street, provides important practices for opening new areas in street art. At the forefront of these approaches that change the perception of traditional materials, street art has a dynamic connection with art, especially with the use of ceramics and the viewer factor that directly relate to it. Contrary to the fast performance process of street art, ceramic material contains slow and different application items, also points to the existence of a planned production process with the approach of different disciplines in street art. Apart from the gallery and museum concept of exhibition space, the use of ceramics, which are familiar to view, is emphasized in this work. Furthermore, except of the use of ceramic material as a building material in urban aesthetics, it also focused on its existence as an artistic discourse. The aim of this work is to develop and exemplify different expansions in the name of ceramics art in the direction of the experiences and practices of the unexpected dynamics of the street in the process from the production process to the exhibition on the street as a public place.
