Santa Monica, CA - Universally Unknown and bG Gallery are proud to present an unprecedented exhibition of street art that explores the history of the form, from its humble beginnings on the streets to its status as a highly coveted commodity in the contemporary art world. Featuring works by some of the most iconic street artists of all time, this exhibition will take viewers on a journey through the cultural and artistic evolution of this dynamic and often misunderstood genre.

Curated by Billy Gross, a long-time enthusiast and collector of street art, this exhibition brings together some of his favorite artists and historical figures in the world of street art. Gross says, "I have always been amazed, whether I am in London, NYC, Los Angeles, or any major city, by what I consider the truest form of art: graffiti, which is now seen as street art. So much culture goes into street art, and I wanted to show the history of the form and some of my favorite artists who have been instrumental in bringing it to the contemporary art world."

The exhibition will showcase works by an impressive lineup of artists, including Banksy, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Fab 5 Freddy and many more. Viewers will have the opportunity to see how these artists have transformed the streets into their own canvas, using a variety of techniques and styles to express their unique visions.

The exhibition will be on view from April 15th to May 1st, 2023, at bG Gallery in Santa Monica, California. Admission is free and open to the public 12-5pm Tuesday-Saturday.
