Eponine Thenardier  -  Street Art

“Street art is […] free from perceived confines of the formal art world. Street artists sometimes present socially relevant content infused with esthetic value, to attract attention to a cause or as a form of ‘art provocation.‘”

“Some of the earliest expressions of street art were […] the work of gangs. It was a time when young people, by responding to their socio-political environment, started creating a movement, taking the ‘battle for meaning’ into their own hands.”
