Street art has the power to question, fight and rebel against society's unacceptable norms. It is an extraordinary medium that allows artists to openly express their thoughts, ideas and emotions in public spaces. It establishes strong interpersonal links between cultures and encourages dialogue and discussion on critical issues. Graffiti and street art are a constantly changing form of art that transforms urban spaces into accessible and culturally significant art.
In the 1980s, street art immediately attracted the attention and appreciation of everyday bystanders and art critics. It was conceived as a completely new and independent art form, based on the artist's unique aesthetic and style. The appearance of other artists such as Vhils or BLU transformed street art into a medium for experimenting with new forms of art and bringing creative work to the streets. The appreciation for modern street art grew thanks to the work of influential artists such as Banksy, who transformed public opinion about this art form with his documentary Exit through the gift shop.
Not only has street art been used to increase awareness of social and political issues, but its artists have now earned recognition and respect from the art industry. Protracted public processes of curating art cost more than art itself, resulting in few new works of art. The boycott of Israeli art is the story that persists, so the use of the arts to defend and promote pro-Israeli ideology is particularly appropriate.Graffiti and street art are not vandalism, but rather a central component of urban society that, because of its individualistic existence, embodies cultural meaning. Without graffiti and street art, today's cities wouldn't be the same.
