BEYOND THE STREETS Gathers Leading International Artists for Monumental Exhibition
Seasoned curator and cultural critic Roger Gastman recently launched the long-anticipated BEYOND THE STREETS 2018 Festival. Considered to be the largest exhibition of street art and graffiti artworks, the immense showcase took over a 40,000-square-foot industrial space in the heart of Los Angeles, California. Attendees were overwhelmed with a slew of paintings, sculptures, photography, installations, and immersive installations created by over 100 leading international artists.
Highlights of the exhibition include Takashi Murakami‘s huge shower curtain installation with MADSAKI, Brooklyn-based artist duo FAILE’s interactive Temple, Felipe Pantone’s ‘ULTRADYNAMIC’ 1994 Chevrolet Corvette, a chapel filled with paintings by the legendary Mister Cartoon, a large-scale painting by Banksy inspired by the elusive artist’s mural on the exterior wall of London’s Barbican, a huge entrance mural painted by RETNA, a life-size sculpture by OG SLICK, and adidas Skateboarding’s recreation of its Venice Pavillion with LA graffiti legend RISK.
