Urban art is the biggest artistic movement of the beginning of this century!

Urban art is universal

 

Urban art is now anchored in the daily lives of city dwellers all over the world. It is present on every continent, in every country and every city. It is taking over new grounds such as mountains, meadows and deserts, as the artist Saype does.

For a long time criticized, urban art is now in great demand despite still being considered as vandalism in most countries.

Braving and often mocking the forbidden, street art is present and is seen more and more visible to the public eye Artists from all over the world are having a blast, whether they are beginners or experienced.

For several years now, we have been witnessing a very strong artistic evolution with an abundance of colors and new techniques. We are also seeing an incredible appropriation of street furniture

 

Urban art is universal Urban art is now anchored in the daily lives of city dwellers all over the world. It is present on every continent, in every country and every city. It is taking over new grounds such as mountains, meadows and deserts, as the artist Saype does.

For a long time criticized, urban art is now in great demand despite still being considered as vandalism in most countries.

Braving and often mocking the forbidden, street art is present and is seen more and more visible to the public eye Artists from all over the world are having a blast, whether they are beginners or experienced.

For several years now, we have been witnessing a very strong artistic evolution with an abundance of colors and new techniques. We are also seeing an incredible appropriation of street furniture Indeed, the artists are playing with all types of street furniture: technical rooms, letter boxes, road signs, benches, fire hydrants, gates and other protective fences.

Moreover, current technologies such as satellite photos and drones are also used by some artists such as Insa. This creator of Gif’ itis, as he calls them, paints graffiti opportunely photographed by geolocation satellites during their rotations. The artist makes his work evolve by playing with the frequencies of passage.

These technologies allow an unequaled amplification of street art and street artists. Street art is emancipating itself, growing fast, and covering evermore monumental façades.

Urban art is direct, impactful, and speaks to everyone It deals with broad themes, reflects collective sensitivities and unites the community by participating in its well-being. Street art also contributes to the economy of the cities in which it is present and accompanies the transformations of rehabilitated places.

The number of artists is growing, so is the demand for their work

A growing number of contemporary art fairs, both national and international, are presenting street art in their collections and dedicated galleries are on the rise.

Urban art is now trendy Its influence is massively relayed by social media, which makes it more popular and increases its interest among the general public. Artists, who are themselves very active in the dissemination of their work, contribute to this craze

This movement is certainly not a fashion, it is a culture, broad, moving, committed and universal

Graffiti has always been a part of man, no matter where these traces of man for man originate.

Graffiti origins

Graffiti have been part of urban culture since ancient times. While some consider cave paintings or cave art as the first graffiti in history, it seems more appropriate to consider the many examples dating from Ancient Greece or the Roman Empire as historical evidence of graffiti.
