Urban art and graffiti were born on the street and made for the street. However, over the last decade we have seen more and more urban art and graffiti artists move from the streets to art galleries.
Urban art embodies creativity, and so should your personal space. Let’s understand if urban art is now ready to conquer the home.
The growing popularity of urban art.
Street art has remained popular over the past decade, and many famous street artists such as Banksy, Eduardo Kobra and Alec Monopoly have become household names in the art community.
Among them, the anonymous graffiti artist Banksy has created works that have been sold at auction for millions of dollars. Speaking out on everything from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to Black Lives Matter to Brexit, Banksy’s talent knows no bounds. His famous works include Napalm (2004), Love is in the Air (Flower Thrower) (2003) and Girl with Balloon (2002).
Banksy’s Game Changer (2020), a tribute to health care workers and frontline heroes, has been praised by artists and art lovers alike. With the recent political conflicts and social unrest around the world, street art has gained more attention and will continue to do so again this year, and is ready to cross another frontier.

Urban art is the biggest art trend of the early 21st century. Having been recognised by gallery owners and collectors, it is now clear to us that urban art is a new element of decoration.
Famous interior design companies and hotels are redesigning interiors by adopting urban art, as the Pullman resort in Maldives with MadC 1 and Miaja Design Group. This technique is known to modernise a space and give it a trendy look. It gives vibrancy and freedom to the space by bringing an urban touch to the decoration of any room.

Urban art offers people endless possibilities to make their interiors interesting, more youthful, more appealing and, most importantly, unique to their taste. And don’t forget that a piece of urban art or graffiti in your home will be the perfect icebreaker for any gathering.
