Screen Prints at 44309 Street Art Gallery
The Urban Pott group show at 44309 Street Art Gallery will be in the form of a street art print group show, with all the selected street artists presenting their works as screen prints. Each of the street artists exhibiting has their own distinct styles when it comes to street art, from stencil to graffiti art and beyond. By uniting them in a print group show, it offers the chance to see how the street artists can experiment with their techniques and imagery within the medium of screen printing. The Urban Pott group show will also be uniting street artists from different generations under one gallery roof, including legends of the street art scene up against some of the young upstarts from the current street art world.
