Peter Horvath is a mixed media artist whose recent work draws inspiration from street art. Horvath creates interesting collages from a bank of mid-20th century reference material, transposing the subjects from their original contexts to infuse them with new meaning. These pieces have a distinctly urban and gritty feel, making them a great pick for a fan of street art photography.
Get to know the streets of Buenos Aires with Tomas Cambas, an Argentinian photographer whose photographs expertly capture the feel of the capital. Working primarily in black and white or with a restricted colour palette, Cambas showcases all facets of the city, from grand architecture to quiet and forgotten street corners.
With artists such as Banksy earning themselves international acclaim, the perception of street art has changed dramatically over the recent decades. What once was seen as vandalism is now considered an art form, capable of conveying powerful messages that are often politically charged. This rise in the reputation of street art has meant its influence has spread to other art forms, and photographers have now begun to capture their images through the lens of urban art.
