Join us for a very special lecture given by Doug Gillen on ‘Hidden Canvasses: Street Art and the City’ in the Warenar on Tuesday, 11th April 2023 at 20.00 hours.This will be a Zoom lecture also shown in the Warenar theatre and we are hoping that members and guests will take the opportunity to come to the Warenar.
Doug is heavily involved in documenting the street art scene in London and abroad through his project Fifth Wall TV, and can offer a genuine insight into this world. Having previously lectured for London Art and More, when not filming, he is also an East End tour guide for Alternative London, specialising in culture and art.
There is more to the world of street art than Banksy, Hidden Canvasses is a beginners guide to the biggest art movement since pop art. From train writing in New York to interactive technology that brings murals to life, the concept of un-commissioned public art is a very different beast to that which it once was. Hidden Canvasses explores the key stages in street art growth examining the different elements and styles that comprise the scene with no rules. From the international superstars to the local underground heroes you are guaranteed to leave knowing your Invader from your Aryz and who knows you might even start looking at the world a little differently.
