Art from the Streets

Opens 13 Jan 2018

The world’s most iconic street artists present their provocative works for the first time in Southeast Asia. 

The galleries of ArtScience Museum will be invaded by some of the world's top street artists in a ground-breaking exhibition titled Art from the Streets. As well as tracing 40 years of Street Art – from its countercultural beginnings to its extraordinary evolution as a contemporary artform – the exhibition will present a series of live paintings created on-site by some iconic names as well as upcoming new street art sensations including Felipe Pantone from Spain, Indonesian artist Eko Nugroho and Singaporean artists Speak Cryptic and Yok & Sheryo. These new works, created especially for the show will illustrate the vitality and diversity of the movement and its relevance today.

The exhibition includes large-scale mural paintings, installations, videos, prints, archival material, drawings and sketches and features the world’s best known street artists including Banksy, Shepard Fairey (aka Obey), Futura, Invader, JR, Blek le Rat, Swoon and Vhils. 

Curated by street art expert and gallerist Magda Danysz, Art from the Streets reflects the evolution of street art, charting the diverse artistic techniques employed by artists through the decades, and showing how technology has created new expressive avenues for artists.

As well as bringing some of the leading international names in Street Art to Singapore for the first time, Art from the Streets also shines a spotlight on urban art in Southeast Asia.
