4th Urban Art Biennale 2017

4th Urban Art Biennale 2017

Street art is becoming (has become?) canonical!

That doesn’t “ruin” it. Just changes it.

When the Federal Government and UNESCO get involved it opens doors for some whilst closing doors for others. Is that a “good thing” or a “bad thing”? Let us just say it is a thing to be mindful of if one chooses to. Here a different street art project by contrast: “the Haus“.

I like the painting below (just one very highly noted work of many on exhibit at the 4th Urban Art Biennale 2017). And i like the idea of this piece of theater.

"Toxic Mary" by Banksy (2003).
