Look up and you may notice some new street art plastered across your cities landscape. This isn’t any old street art though … This is Gucci street art. First came Marina Abramovic’s face appearing on buildings worldwide, replicating the advertising campaign of her show ‘The Artist is Present’ to promote a new Gucci exhibit curated by Maurizio Cattelan. Now the new ArtWalls around the world feature illustrations by artists and young talents who have connected their artistic style and individuality to show off the new #GucciDIY service.
