"POST-GRAFFITI PACIFIC" @ aMBUSH Gallery, Sydney

July 09, 2015

Post-Graffiti Pacific, which launches at aMBUSH Gallery, Central Park, Chippendale on Thursday 16 July from 6-9pm, seeks, in part, to organise the way we talk about urban contemporary art. As urban contemporary artists have evolved to straddle the divide between public and studio practice, terms like ‘graffiti’ and ‘street art’ have become insufficient to describe the activities and motivations of today’s urban artists. ‘Post-Graffiti’ is now a recognised term, used to describe the work of artists whose backgrounds in graffiti inform their professional artistic practice. Participating artists include Askew, Benjamin Work, Berst, Eliot Francis Sterwart, Gary Silipa, Misery and Route 52.
