Just a few days ago a real premiere took place in Istanbul – for the first time, a museum organised a comprehensive Street Art exhibition. To be more specific, we are talking about Pera Museum in Istanbul and curator Roxane Ayral, who invited 20 prolific artists from Europe and the US to collaborate, create and exhibit their latest work. The exhibition is as exciting as diversified and presents different styles and media such as paintings, installations, photography and sculpture.
The line-up reads as the who is who in the international Urban Art scene: Futura, Carlos Mare, Cope 2, Turbo, Wyne, JonOne, Tilt, Mist, Psyckoze, Craig Costello (aka KR), Herakut, Logan Hicks, C215, Suiko, Evol, Gaia, Tabone, Funk, No More Lies, Martha Cooper, Henry Chalfant and Hugh Holland.
