Top 10 Galleries in April

May 5, 2015

The recent rise in popularity of urban and street art has been mirrored by the amount of contemporary art galleries specialising in those areas. With urban and street art evolving into respected art forms and making its way into the mainstream via retail outlets such as furniture giant Ikea, it is important that there are quality art galleries out there presenting exhibitions. Read more about such issues in Ikea Loves Street Art, Graffiti Hits the 21st Century and Is Hyundai Stealing from Street Artists. Contemporary art galleries have always been important in bringing new talent to the fore, with many now offering urban and street artists the chance to combine successful studio careers alongside their street art offerings. You can explore a whole range of contemporary art galleries in the Widewalls Galleries section and here we present a rundown of the most visited gallery pages by our readers during April.
