Now, for the first time ever, on November 9, 2012, Opera Gallery London & ANV harness the brilliance of 33 of the most important urban and street artists of our time. Together they pay homage to those art masters, masterpieces and muses who have inspired them throughout history in: “The Urban Masters.” Taking place in a fittingly urban but inspirational setting—a former Victorian factory in Shoreditch – Factory 7—from Friday November 9, 2012 until Sunday November 18, 2012. The exhibition will see a delicious juxtaposition of styles as we witness the artists exploring the “Urban Master” theme in dramatic fashion. Expect your senses to be overwhelmed with works spanning from canvases, installations, moving art, photography, pop-art, street art and much more. All the proceeds from the exhibition catalogue will go to Anti-Slavery International.
