The perfect present : Artsper's gift card

Street-art

Born in the 70s on the New York subway, street art came into full force in Europe in the 80s, although graffiti had already existed in France and Germany since the 60s. Traditionally, the artistic movement referred to artwork created in the street, which explains why we tend to associate it with the temporary. Today, however, street art is considered more broadly and includes artworks made with all mediums.

With support from art galleries, mass popularity on the Internet and social media, growing legitimacy through auction house sales and museum acquisitions, urban art is now commonly recognized as one of key art movements of the 21st century. Accepted, if not encouraged and commissioned, by cities, street art can now be found on a growing number of walls which have been transformed into giant paintings by the greatest street artists using spray cans, paint brushes and stencils.

Whereas in the beginning street art only referred to tags, meaning signatures, its artistic vocabulary has grown with every new shape and color, as the artworks have become increasingly complex and technical. The goal of this art is to remind people that it is the artist that creates the art and that neither museums nor galleries can define it. Long considered illegal by the authorities and especially transportation companies, it is now celebrated by the public and young artists, who see it as the ultimate symbol of freedom of expression. This conflict been the artists and the authorities is at the basis of the political criticism often associated to urban art. However not all street artists go down this root even if some of the biggest names, such as Banksy certainly do.

Many street artists now work on canvas or other mediums as well as on walls which means Artsper is able to offer a wide selection of works from some of the major urban artists.
