Top 25: Who were the best street artists of 2019 in the art market?

If street art has evolved from the anonymous and illegal practice that it was to go towards public recognition, this has made it more and more accessible to collectors.

Street art is a new and rich target for those who invest in art. A popular movement, urban art currently embodies a spirit of freedom through its political awareness and more recently its socio-environmental activism over the past decade. Although it has been around for a long time, it is still the most representative movement today and it thrives in all its forms, whether committed or not. From big names to small ones, all investments in street art are interesting.
