Re­sid­ing un­der the same roof as the fine, clas­si­cal and con­tem­po­rary art col­lec­tions at the ArtS­cience Mu­seum, “Art from the Streets” sig­nals an ur­ban rev­o­lu­tion. The re­gion’s largest ret­ro­spec­tive street art ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes floor-to-ceil­ing mu­rals by Obey founder, Shep­ard Fairey; ran­domly placed mo­saic works by Parisian artist, In­vader; a spray paint mas­ter­piece by graf­fiti leg­end Fu­tura; an ex­pres­sive wall by Sin­ga­pore’s own Speak Cryp­tic; and a glass-en­cased Banksy. The ex­hi­bi­tion’s cu­ra­tor, gal­lerist and street art ex­pert, Magda Danysz says: “Street art is the most im­por­tant art move­ment that has emerged in the 21st cen­tury—these artists are the Pi­cas­sos of our time.” From now to 3 June, 2018
