Graffiti Is Coming of Age
As street art evolves, so do our tastes and sensibilities.

Our favorite street art is not necessarily simply a great image or a playful character that makes us smile. It is an element of surprise into an otherwise uniform and predictable world.
Street art that truly inspires me is work that is site specific – meaning that the artist fully incorporates the specific location into the work. This is not only when street art is truly at its best, but it’s when street art is truly “street art” and not just simply a poster or a sticker placed on a wall without permission.
High-end street art for the connoisseur.
