Street Art: Contemporary Prints from the V&A
Street art has moved away from the painted wall into the medium of printmaking, creating distinctive, exciting visuals along the way. Drawn from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s internationally renowned collection of print, this exhibition showcases work from both established and emerging street artists from Britain and the rest of the world, including names such as Banksy, D*Face, Eine, Miss Tic, Shepard Fairey and Swoon.This exhibition explore recurring themes within their work, including Politics and Propaganda, Symbols and Characters, Influences and Image making and City and Street, which looks at the defining element of street art; the urban environment. This exhibition is a snapshot into a vibrant genre that continues to expand, evolve and establish itself as an art form in its own right.
