There is no better school than the street. The street is an unconventional gallery of modern art wherein one can display one’s work free of compromises ; the place where one’s own style meets, clashes with and confronts the work of all the others – with complete freedom and total diversity. The street is a mixture of languages and a hotchpotch of voices, where the pictograms of road signs and the surreal messages written by street artists live side by side, and where the simple commercial communication runs up against the political. The street makes visible to the careful observer the underlying noise of our society, because the street generates its own methods of communication. In the streets of any city, each message shouts to be seen, and it is in this creative chaos that the germs of street-talk are concealed; street-talk that will in all probability prompt our forthcoming lifestyle. It is always on this multicolored and multiethnic stage that the culture of the masses and the subcultures probe their powers of persuasion.
The gallery creates a fruitful link between artists and collectors by helping talented emerging artists gain the international recognition they deserve and by proposing remarkable artworks to art amateurs. A selection of art works to purchase can be found in available artworks.
