Urban Masters is an alternative art installation giving street and urban artists a chance to render homage to the masters, masterpieces and muses that have influenced their journey through the world of art and played a part in who they are now. At the heart of London’s trendy Shoreditch works of 33 of the world’s best street artists of the moment are at display in a warehouse.

Butterfly, who documents street art and graffiti across the world, has been a co-curator alongside Opera Gallery.

“Urban Masters is a show asking street artists to pay tribute to the masters who inspired them and re-visit some classics. For example some artists have been inspired by Klimt, by Picasso, but also adding their own twist to the pieces and using their own techniques and tools, so the result is breathtaking.”

This is an international collaboration in which artists have taken part from United States, France, UK, Colombia and so on. What’s striking is the diversity of styles and techniques.

Factory 7, 13 Hearn Street, London EC2A 3LS
