Grab yourselves a cup of tea or beer and sit back and watch this Babelgum exclusive online premier of Sebastian Peiter's 60-minute documentary 'Guerilla Art' telling how street art went from subway graffiti to international big business.
"Over the last few years Street Art has established itself as an art form. But where can this street-based movement go from here, after works by Banksy have been boarded up, chiselled off the walls, to be sold on eBay for money far exceeding the gallery prices?"
— Tim Marlow, White Cube curator & narrator of Guerilla Art.
Filmed in New York, London, Paris, São Pauloand Tokyo, Guerilla Art explores how the latest generation of street artists became the newest hot property of art collectors, and began flirting with advertising and commerce. Featuring interviews and works from Futura 2000, Rammellzee, Banksy, Os Gemeos, Space Invader, Barnstormers, Espo, WK Interact, Zevs, Blek Le Rat, André, Noki, Miss Van and Eine.
