What is street art

Street art (or street art) is a particular form of expression of contemporary art. It occurs in public places and, originally, often illegally. The artists use different techniques: spray cans, stencils, acrylic colors with brushes, stickers.

When street art was born

In the 1980s in England and the United States, the streets began to be papered with the first form of street art: tags. They were real anonymous “signatures” left by young people in the most unthinkable places: buildings, metro stops or inside trains. In this way the artists emerged, they took up new spaces.

At the end of the last century in Europe many graffiti artists began to offer their works also on posters or paint on the wall. The goal was the pursuit of mass communication. For street artists, art must belong to everyone and must be enjoyed outside the hitherto deputy places, such as museums for example.

He studied at the Pietro Selvatico Art Institute, Academy of Fine Arts and the Faculty of Architecture in Venice. In his works the love for the Big Apple and its symbols.


Alessio-b he discovers the writers and the stencil technique thanks to the Parisian " Blek le rat ". After graduating in architecture in Venice, he begins to travel, stocking up on memories, images and sensations that will help him outline his destiny as a street painter.
