Mythical works of Street Art - Venice Art Walls

Œuvres mythiques du Street Art - Venice Art Walls
Each week, HIYA Gallery looks back on the history of art and more precisely on the history of street art and its associated movements. We try to highlight the pioneers of this movement who have become legends, the mythical works that have left their mark in the history of street art, as well as important cultural events concerning the development of street art and graffiti, such as books rare or cult, exhibitions making reference in the history of the movement, films and other events.

We believe that in order to understand and feel the art of our time, we must constantly learn where it came from and what its roots are. That is why, alongside the representation and promotion of artists, we want to share with you knowledge about the history of street art.

Venice Art Walls 

Venice Art Walls is a legal graffiti wall that has become a landmark in the city of Los Angeles, located on Southern California's most iconic beach - Venice Beach, on the boardwalk between the skate park and the basketball courts . Venice Art Walls is the most historic monument of the Los Angeles graffiti movement. Traditional and modern street art, frescoes and graffiti are still on display on the walls of Venice Art Walls. These walls located along Venice Beach were built in 1961 as part of the Venice Pavilion and already at that time the walls were often covered with graffiti, but illegally. In 1999, the pavilion was demolished, but part of the walls were left in homage to the works that were there. In 2000, it became legal to paint on the walls of Venice Art Walls and the area was renamed Venice Graffiti Walls.
