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.


Some really awesome pieces shown here. Fantastic venue as well.

That Banksy is such a stunner. Wish he still did public prints.


Imagine all the money he could make from releasing more public prints, I wonder why he has stopped contrary to other artists like KAWS. On the other hand, he had plenty of merch releases at the walled of hotel, like for example the crucifix grappling hook.

From that piece alone he made 30 x 40.000 GBP. The Walled off hotel is basically booked all year around as well.
