> DESCRIPTION

The great outdoors has long been a place of escape. The raw

connection with nature and its elements has a certain allure. For

street artists the great outdoors provides another dimension. These

artists carry on the enlightened tradition of adapting their artwork

to weather, people, space and situation. Some are early pioneers,

decades before working in this setting was socially acknowledged

as art. They have managed to risk the elements of extinction, theft,

decay and urban renewal.


Woodward Gallery features the following celebrated, outdoor artists to

respond to their personal environment: Royce Bannon, Darkcloud,

Michael De Feo, El Celso, LA II, Kenji Nakayama, Neckface, Lady

Pink, Matt Siren, Stikman, and Swoon.


These artists have proven the art of survival and have thrived in the urban

environment. Their individual works have become indelible, iconic images

for the public.


Since street art is exposed and unprotected from all the elements of the

outdoors, this exhibition is a study of the inspirational effect and cultural

exchange when extracted for further contemplation in an indoor-gallery

setting.
