About The Dirty Art: A Celebration of Norwegian Street Art, Vol 3–
Blank Space honors one of the world’s foremost forms of art with their annual Dirty Art exhibition, where we celebrate street art’s amazing ability to bring art directly to you! Now including no entrance fee, no judgments, and no nonsense.
In this third yearly edition of the already popular show we welcome 7 street artists- some old and some new, some gallery oriented and some straight from the street. Don’t expect any high-priced, elitist art on these walls – each artist will be painting work directly onto the walls of the gallery itself so, every viewer can experience the pieces as they meant to be seen: as a form of cultural expression and not a contest for the most expensive piece.
This year’s show, with an even more diverse group of artists, rounds out many of the exciting avenues and styles that street art can entail : stencils, installation, throw-ups, graffiti, murals, hand-painting, spray, and more. We’ve welcome all our artists to do whatever they want, and have supported new collaborations from each of them, and so be prepared for brand new work with untapped imagination and passion.
Please email email@example.com for all inquiries, and to pre-reserve pieces available for purchase.
