I was thrilled to be part of this show last year. Such an incredible line up that included some old friends, and some new ones. Its hard to explain the amount of fun that goes into these things. While the artwork is the reason you are there, it’s the people and the interactions that you remember the most.

Pera Museum hosts, for the first time in Turkey, an exhibition on one of the art world’s hottest topics – Graffiti and Street Art. Work from America and Europe are exhibited, providing interesting examples examining the concept of ‘graffiti’ and ‘bringing the street to the museum’, as well as creating a platform for discussion and debate.

Hosting more than 20 artists from America, Germany, France, Japan, as well as Turkey, the exhibition, curated by Roxane Ayral, includes works by distinguished names from different generations and disciplines such as Futura, Carlos Mare, Cope 2, Turbo, Wyne, JonOne, Tilt, Mist, Psyckoze, Craig Costello (aka KR), Herakut, Logan Hicks, C215, Suiko, Evol, Gaia, Tabone, Funk and No More Lies, along with selected photographs from the archive of leading artists Martha Cooper, Henry Chalfant and Hugh Holland.
