From 5 February onwards, Kunstlinie Almere and Vroom & Varossieau Gallery present the exhibition Shapeshifters, an exhibition about groundbreaking artists that changed the world of street art. Street artists come from different backgrounds, and they all have different methods of expressing themselves. The result of this is that street
art comes in many different forms, and the aim of Shapeshifters is to show the raw beauty of the genre and all the different forms it comes in: from murals and sculptures to collectibles and sneakers. That is the beauty of street art: it goes beyond the conventional paintings on canvas and finds its way on every object imaginable, while respecting the traditional methods at times. The exhibition is in collaboration with the top-tier art gallery Vroom & Varossieau Gallery, which has been active in the street art scene for many years and is well-respected for it.
The exhibition covers a wide variety of artists, ranging from prestigious names such as Futura and Banksy, while also giving a platform to rather up-and-coming artists. The prestigious, as well as the up-and-coming artist, have one thing in common; they are all known to have changed the world of street art in one way or another. Some of the artists have introduced a new medium of expression, while others have transformed the medium itself in a way that can be considered groundbreaking. Artists in the exhibition have used art styles such as graffiti, 3D, and abstract to express themselves in their preferred way. One thing is for certain; the artists have all earned their place in the exhibition that is Shapeshifters, and Kunstlinie and Vroom & Varossieau Gallery are proud to present such a fine selection of artists.
