Baroque the Streets
14 August 2013
As we've included features about urban and street art this month, we thought you might find a project which was developed by Dulwich Picture Gallery interesting.
Twelve leading street artists were invited to study the Baroque paintings held in the gallery collection and reinterpret their choice on walls around Dulwich. We found some fascinating video content via Vimeo that shows you what happened; the strong personalities involved and how the works were created. A few of the works remain in the area.
A short documentary with one of the artists, STIK, can be viewed here.
You can also watch a film about the project overall here but this one comes with a WARNING. If you are easily offended then please be aware that strong language and curse words are used in this film. Overall, the content paints a brilliant but frank picture of the scene. However, if you are not comfortable with the use of strong language, we would NOT recommend you view it.
