Street Art: Illegal And Rapidly Gaining Acceptance

Street art is mostly illegal. It is vandalism of public property. Still, in many parts of the world, it has been accepted as an irrepressible part of creative expression through art.

In many countries, street art has been brought into galleries for public display. And while there are debates on the ethics of presenting street art outside the context of the street, many countries are still jumping on the bandwagon. One such country is China.

At the K11 Musea and supported by the K11 Art Foundation, an art exhibition titled “City as a Studio” is set to hold from the 20th of March to the 14th of May 2023. It is to be a historical reflection on graffiti art, and art curator Jeffrey Deitch has selected over a hundred pieces from 30 artists worldwide.
