Exhibition: Masters of Invention

When: 18.05.2019 to 07.07.2019

Graffiti art meets contemporary craft in a ground breaking new exhibition opening this spring at Devon Guild of Craftsmen. This exhibition will challenge perceptions of graffiti writing culture, whilst expanding traditional definitions of art, craft and design.

Masters of Invention brings together a new collection of artworks and installations by influential figures from the culture of graffiti writing over the past 40 years, all emerging from the youth-led cultures of punk and hip-hop, all sharing a dedication to honing their craft through multi-disciplinary practice. These leading UK and European artists now make up a pioneering group - their roots firmly set in the origins of the now global creative phenomenon, and contemporary art scene, with art works exploring creative possibilities away from the city walls and subways.
