POP THE STREETS

An urban and street art spectacle: an exhibition of works by 10 contemporary graffiti and street artists from around the world at the Saatchi Gallery, curated by Olly Walker. Pop the Streets illustrated the influence of Pop Art on the concepts and works of the artists. This exhibition connected new and original works, many of them created especially for this show, with the Pop Art movement that has influenced the shape of the contemporary street and urban art. Pop the Streets showed the potential to change establishment views on contemporary graffiti and street art. Famous British painter and collage artist Richard Hamilton once said that Pop Art is “popular, transient, expendable, low-cost, mass-produced, young, witty, sexy, gimmicky, glamorous and Big Business.” Pop the Streets showed that while street art has adopted many of these criteria, it is also political and relevant, as this exhibition demonstrated.
