Street Art Masters is the new appointment presented by Wunderkammern in its Milanese spaces in via Nerino 2. It is an interesting and articulated collective exhibition that aims to reflect on the complexities linked to the languages of Street Art. On show are the most important and representative names in the history of this movement: Blek le Rat, Invader, Shepard Fairey, Stik as well as the Miaz Brothers, artists who for years have been playing with stickers, stencils, markers, spray cans and mosaic tiles to promote their unprecedented language that is conquering the international scene. 

For some, urban art is a way of protesting against social discrimination, politics, institutions and private property, for others simply a form of free expression without any filter. To date, in fact, we can say that Blek le Rat's rats from which the artist takes his name "rat", which is also an anagram of "art", the gaze of André The Giant by Shepard Fairey (OBEY) in whose works there is always a strong political message, the video game character of Space Invader and the stylised little men of Stik - one of the youngest artists on show for the first time at Wunderkammern - are iconic all over the world. 

A rich selection of new works will be presented to the Milanese public: unique or limited edition pieces ranging from canvas to paper. The upper floor of the Gallery will also host a collection of portraits by the well-known Italian duo Miaz Brothers, artists who learned the use of the airbrush - a tool similar to the spray can - from the great masters of Street Art but have distorted its nature and function. Aerosol painting, together with stencil, is one of the favourite techniques of street artists because it offers them the possibility of very quickly replicating the same image on the walls (often created without authorisation), but the Miaz Brothers make it a tool to be used with precision and technical skill. Their works created in this way, therefore no longer immediate, acquire a different reception and elaboration.
