Many people ask: “what is the difference between the graffiti and the street art?” In fact, it’s very simple. The graffiti has risen since the 1970s, and it’s the beginning of the street art. Emerging after the graffiti, the street art includes various artistic forms: graffiti, stencil, collage, calligraphy, mosaics and so on.
The exhibition Street Art, a global view will be on from July 1 to August 24 at the 3B exhibition hall in the Art Museum of Central Academy of Fine Arts. It is jointly organized by the Department of Mural Painting Department of CAFA and the CAFA Art Museum, in cooperation with the Magda Danysz Gallery. Street artists from Brazil, China, France, Italy, Portugal, Senegal, the US, and the UK will be on hand to show us their works. The opening ceremony will feature a live painting performance. This exhibition is an important archive exhibition of street art, where the audience can gain a better understanding of the history and development of street art.
