New exhibitions featuring Polish street art were recently opened as part of the Street Art Project of the Google Cultural Institute. The Google Art Project is a platform created by Google, dedicated to promoting art on the internet.
Three exhibitions from Poland were shared by the Traffic Design Association from Gdynia. Two of them are collections of works made during two editions of a Gdynia festival, Traffic Design 2013 and Traffic Design 2014. The two exhibitions comprise works created by artists from all over the world, including murals by Sainer from ETAM Cru (Poland), Prozak (Brazil), Kislow (Ukraine), Remi Rough and Nawer (England and Poland), and Pisa 73 and Czarnobyl (Germany). Among the other famous featured artists are Knarf (Austria), Seikon (Poland), Sten & Lex (Italy), Elian and Pastel (Argentina), Zoer and Velvet (France), Basik (Italy), Vera King and SC Szyman (Poland) and ABCDEF (Germany). The third exhibition shows another project executed during last year’s, fourth edition of the festival. In co-operation with tri-city-based architect Filip Kozarski, artists renewed a rail platform in Redłowo.
Łódź Urban Forms Foundation, which has co-operated with the Google Cultural Institute since 2013, has presented seven new exhibitions. The Street Art Project's new collections exhibit works created during the Urban Forms Gallery Festival 2014, including murals by artists such as Eduardo Kobry, Morika, DalEasta, Nunca, Vhilsa, Cekasa, Chazma, Proembriona, Sepe and Tone. An additional attraction of the gallery are the mural making-of materials.
All of the aforementioned exhibitions can be found here. The web-based gallery of Street Art Project features 10,000 photographs of street art works from around the world.
