Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues.
It is a term that was first used in the 1980s to describe any art in the urban environment. It rose to prominence in New York’s SoHo through the work of painters like Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, Jean Michel Basquiat and Richard Hambleton, and in Paris through artists like Blek Le Rat and Nemo.
Street Art is constantly evolving. Each day, fresh coats of paint and newly pasted posters appear overnight in cities across the world. In a process of perpetual renewal, new marks and artworks are layered over the fading ghosts of graffiti past and decaying surfaces of the city.
Today’s Street Artists encompasse many medias and techniques to produce their works. Stencil Graffiti, Sticker Art, Wheatpasted Poster Art, LED Art, Street Installation or Sculpture are all common forms of modern Street Art.
