Street art originally stemmed from protest cultures, civil disobedience and countercultural movements of the 1960s and 1970s. In the United States, young graffiti artists first sprayed their names or simple tags on houses and underground trains. This later evolved into increasingly sophisticated images that covered entire building walls. The entire city became a gallery. These pioneers took great risks and remained largely anonymous because of their illegal actions. Many of the artists chosen for this exhibition come from skateboard and graffiti scenes. They grew up with characters like Bart Simpson and Luke Skywalker – which is why this exhibition is also a chance to reconnect with 80s and 90s pop culture icons.
