Interview

Remi Rough at Art From The Streets:

Remi Rough at Art From The Streets: "I try and find solutions to space"


There’s much to be said for placing street art in a museum. While some may try to wrap heads around how such a subversive form can be commodified, others might feel that it’s the start of another era — where perhaps art from the streets can finally be accepted by the general audience and pave way for street artists and graffiti writers in the now.

For us, it was a valuable lesson in seeing the combination of different works around the world. It’s difficult to erase the connection between these art and roots in which one has come from, even if it was not originally intended so.

What was enjoyable as well was the focus that Magda Danysz has put in place in ArtScience Museum — straying away from the familiar names like Banksy and Futura, instead providing a wide enough platform for artists like Speak Cryptic, Yok & Sheryo, Tarek Benaoum, Remi Rough and Felipe Pantone who created new site-specific artworks for the show.

In our conversation with Remi Rough and Felipe Pantone back in January, we examine honesty in their works and how technology has created an entirely different world for artists of their era.
