DESCRIPTION

The term “street art” often makes people think of graffiti on city thoroughfares. However, in recent years there has been considerable diversification in this art form. Established in harmony with the city, street art has taken its place within the urban landscape, becoming one with it, and is being increasingly recognised in artistic circles. Alongside the ‘tags' that appeared in United States in the 1970s, more realistic paintings, posters and in situ installations have also taken up residence in the street.
