Street art, or often called urban art, is non-conformist and full of imagination. Street art surprises in the most unusual places, lights up the walls of buildings and brings the gray monotony of big cities like Berlin or New York to life: street art has revolutionized the art scene. It transforms arbitrary objects in urban space into serious art and has long been considered one of the most vibrant art forms of our time. Originally sprayed with graffiti on streets and subway cars, stencil art has thrilled collectors the world over, not least since the phenomenal success of Banksy. One who can be called the forefather of street art is, incidentally, Keith Haring, who first discovered the street as a painting ground with his Subway Drawings in the 80s. The Frenchman Blek Le Rat is considered the founder of the street art scene in Europe.
Street art is actually always characterized by the lush use of spray paint and, of course, stencils. On the street, the actual origin of graffiti and street art, the attachment of artwork is still illegal. Therefore, it must go quickly for the artists. Stencils and sprays are ideal for this. The stencil thus became the feature of street art because it is the most commonly used technique of graffiti art. For the galleries, this technique is usually transferred as mixed media unique pieces on transportable substrates such as paper, wood or corten steel.
