Street Art in Belgrade “Book launch in Paris”

Street art is exposed to time and emotions, and whit exhibition and book our desire is to preserve this specific art form, to document it and make it more visible, because it represents an indispensable part of the urban surrounding and vibrant, artistic part of Belgrade. Paris had a big impact on the Belgrade graffiti scene. One of the examples is the street artist Jens, who after his stay in Paris, brought a new style from Parisian streets to Belgrade, and thus revived and launched the street art of the 90s, which was almost dead due to the political and economic difficulties that the country was going through. Famous Parisian artists have visited Belgrade and left their artwork on the walls of the city Black le Rat, REMED on the walls, and many Serbian artists spent time in Paris, where they acquired new insights and inspiration for their street art. During the opening and in the first days of the exhibition, famous Serbian artists Artez and TKV will create art that will represent connection between Paris and Belgrade. Belgrade is the capital of Serbia.
