“It gives me pleasure to invite everyone to view the exhibition and interact more with the vibrant art scene and culture from Israel. These artists are considered the “Masters” in pop and street art,” says Ambassador of Israel to India Naor Gilon. With various backgrounds and expressiveness, these artists intervene in urban imagery and create pieces in a unique manner to communicate with contemporary observers. We aim to offer viewers of India a visual symphony of changes, interchanges, trends, conventions, and transformations that is now a signature to the culture and art production of the street art movement today,” he adds.
