Urban Masters Exhibition

Opera Gallery London & ANV presents 32 of the most influential urban and street artists of our time as they pay homage to those art masters, masterpieces and muses who have inspired them throughout history in the ground breaking exhibition Urban Masters’. 
Taking place Friday 9 November in a fittingly urban but inspirational setting, a former Victorian factory in Shoreditch: Factory 7, the exhibition, curated by Jean-David Malat showcases a delicious juxtaposition of styles and ideals as we witness the artists exploring the ‘Urban Master’ theme in dramatic fashion. “It is time we give this new generation a say and let them tell us their story, tell us who inspired them personally and what made them the artists they are."  
Expect your senses to be overwhelmed with works from the world’s best street artists of the moment including: Joe Black (UK), Rone (AUS), Risk (US), Shepard Fairey (US), ROA (BE), Mentalgassi (DE), Banksy (UK), Gris1 (FR), and Nick Gentry (UK). Surprises will come as standard with pieces spanning from large canvasses, 3-D installations, moving art, photography, pop-art, street art and much more! 
Expect big queues on the 9 November 11am - 7pm as visitors clamour to claim their free poster featuring artists from the show! The exhibition will also offer visitors the unique opportunity to meet some of the artists involved with a public book signing on the same day, which will feature many of the iconic works from the show.
