The creativity of street art has no boundaries and moves from the street to the inside of homes. Murals and graffiti have become, in recent years, furnishing objects. From the big cities to the walls of the house, the trend is to combine furniture with contemporary lines to the bright colors of writers’ representations.

Until recently, street artists were considered vandals and no one would ever have thought that their works would become an extraordinary form of art.


Between the end of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first, street art evolved and developed in different forms: graffiti, stencils, prints and murals. Precursors of this movement were the gangs of young New Yorkers in the Bronx who rebelled against the socio-political context of the time. They had no hope of emerging from the ghettos of their cities therefore the design turned into their cry of indignation.

This phenomenon has attracted the attention of “adults”. Those who were considered street thugs gave birth to an art movement that ended up in art galleries, thus encouraging urban creativity.

A single dominant element instead will ensure that the result is perfect. Decorate without changing the contemporaneity of the elements.
