Street art has evolved from writing-based graffiti into a rich and democratic form of visual expression. While many of the works are site-specific, the genre has become a global phenomenon as the internet transmits the latest works around the world in an instant. In recent years, such established street artists as Banksy, Eine, Shepard Fairey and D*Face have embraced printmaking as a fundamental component of the oeuvre. The most urban of art forms, street art is also one of the most modern, effectively bridging - sometimes wittily subverting - the traditional gallery/street divide.
