Urban Art Agenda #3: International Street Art Exhibition. Inspired by New York graffiti of the 1980s, stencil art is a form of street art, or urban art as it is often called, which has sprung up all over the globe in the last two decades. Now a respected art movement and refined art-form, it has long moved off the streets and into galleries and art spaces.
Urban Art Agenda #3 brings together some of the most prolific stencil artists from around the world in an unique showcase.
