Spray paint, markers, stickers… street art is becoming more and more recognised as an art. Though the tools and ideas are very similar to graffiti, street art has a different intent. It's about publicly questioning society and provoking a reaction beyond its creation's aesthetic nature. Streets and buildings, which these artists use as canvases, separate these artists from others who use more traditional methods.
Thanks to a few contemporary galleries, this genre has a new home in the antique district of Nice. With Nocturne #2, these galleries have brought together multiple exhibitions and will host a joint vernissage on 18 Sept. It’s almost like a pub crawl – with art!
