Urban Routes

URBAN ROUTES!


 

The Patrick Jones Gallery is proud to present Urban Routes, a group exhibition featuring

internationally renowned street artists.


 

Street art is often thought of, and categorized as graffiti. While graffiti can be considered street

art, and is even credited with its origin, street art is not graffiti.


 

Graffiti art has its origins in 1920s-1930s New York, when people began to use spray paint and

other materials to create images on buildings and on the sides of subway trains. Such graffiti

can range from bright graphic images (wildstyle) to the stylized monogram (tag). Tagging and

Stencil letters are prime examples of graffiti, often marking territory or identity.


 

Street art can arguably be traced back to prehistoric times with cave paintings and handprints

tying communities together, and even using some of the drawings as information storage.

However, the art many people picture today was popularized in 1980s New York by artists such

as Jean-Michel Basqiuat, Keith Haring and Richard Hambleton. This propelled it into museums

and galleries and gave street art the same prominence as fine art, blurring the lines for the first

time in history.


 

We believe that period in time was only the beginning of street art’s acceptance into the fine art

world. Over the last few decades, artists such as Banksy and Invader have emerged on the

scene in which prices reach into the millions.


 

Now is the golden age for street art, as many large corporations and businesses are supporting

what was once not even recognized as a form of art. The art history books over the next

hundred years will feature your favorite street artists, many of which will be on display.

Paintings from our represented artists, as well as our private collection will be available for

purchase. We welcome you to visit the gallery to explore the exciting world of Urban Routes.
