Graffiti, Street Art, Muralism... or the plurality of Urban Arts
Graffiti and Street Art have always been two distinct branches of Urban Art, the most prolific artistic movement of the 21st century. Even if the line that divides both disciplines is sometimes small and can be easily crossed, with artists moving from one discipline to another, these notions imply different practices, aesthetics and codes. With as common point however, the act of creation mainly carried out without authorization in the public space but also the appropriation of the street and the ephemeral character of the work. However, from these illicit interventions anchored within an underground culture, a multitude of artistic practices have since asserted themselves, symbolizing the diversity of this movement, to such an extent that they can now be qualified as urban arts.
