SODRE, Ana Maria Rolim  and  WEBER, Lílian. The urban art and its effects on subjective processes: a bibliographic review in psychology field. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.2, pp. 66-75. ISSN 2359-0769.

Currently, multidisciplinary teams have been thinking of ways to reinvent cities for citizens, transforming the environment in places where social interweaving and humanization of individuals occur. The urban environment becomes the focus of interventions, among them the art leaving museums and gains streets. Urban art is configured as a social practice that involves aesthetic and social significance, affecting the daily life experienced by residents in large cities. The effects of urban art in subjective processes are the background of this article, which aims to analyze the academic production that articulates urban art and psychology. Therefore, a systematic review of literature was conducted, in articles published in PEPSIC and Scielo databases, in the period of 2006 and 2015. There are few publications found link: ing urban art and psychology. The relation of psychology to art, as shown by the publications of the period, is link: ed to clinical treatment sphere and the relation artist-work. The relationship between those who contemplate and the work of art is little explored in the field of psychology. In particular, think this affectation in the public sphere would develop contributions to collective interventions focusing on subjective processes. That demonstrates the existence of a gap in this field of knowledge, highlighting the importance of researches on this interrelationship due to its effects on the (re) invention of individuals and production of lifestyles.
