When classical art inspires urban art.
Classical art has become a standard model for regular reinventions by urban artists of all generations: owning it, and using it to reflect on topics of our present-day life: gender issues, environmental emergency, art, culture and consumption, the omnipotence of the image…
Sometimes classical art serves as a playful pretext for humorous winks, sometimes as a support for political demands, or as a platform for iconoclastic projects.
Discover the classic side of Street Art with our selection of works.

The new book by Cyrille Gouyette, art historian and Chargé de Mission of the Musée du Louvre, narrates with rich and detailed illustrations how Street Art in recent years has adapted to the Louvre’s collection and the world’s leading museums and used this artistic content to reflect on our nowadays issues.
An essential book to understand the relevance of this new artistic approach which, thanks to yesterday’s reference, opens our eyes to today’s reality.
