Repeating Images in Graffiti

Why do street artists repeat the same images over and over again with slight variations?

"I don’t know if it’s more of street art encouraging repetitiveness than it is more of how our culture operates, Alec Monopoly said.

"People don’t generally look for art in the streets, but when your work catches their eye and they see it over and over again, they begin to pay attention."
