Had a good time attending the artist talk for the Love, Hope, and Street Art art exhibition which is being held at the Hornfleur Gallery. Curated by graffiti artist Luis Del Valle, Love, Hope and Street Art is a multisensory experience that educates visitors about the visual language of street artists. Viewers are engaged to better understand street language through explanations of the symbolism of street art.
In the exhibition, the evolution of graffiti from tagging, throw-ups, and burners to the corporate boardroom is displayed and interpreted. Beyond Luis Del Valle’s personal contributions to the installation, the artwork is provided by artists DECOY, Cory Stowers, Asad Walker , and HKS 181, each of whom have created 10-15 years of street art (typically deemed illegal by authorities) and are now exhibiting in galleries.
The show is on exhibition till November 17th and for more info click here.
