and HOW DO WE KNOW?
We do a lot of 'Art Fairs' see a lot of art buyers and talk to a lot of people
everyone is asking for 'Street Art' or Urban Art.
Jean Michel Basquiat is a heavy influencer of this type of art.
The Barbican click recently held an exhibition of this American artists' work, who died young. Basquiat's web site is here click
Art Galleries like 'Reem' click represent a lot of Urban Art Artists and we have artists in our own studio creating original art often with a sense of humour.
WHY is it happening? Art has to 'move forward' Art buyers always look for something new and want to hang paintings that represent the times or have a sense of fun. There is also a 'deeper' issue = Emotional Response'
