Insiders, is a term referring to how the global street art movement has advanced from the sidelines of the art world… eroding the walls between the gallery and the “streets as studio” setting… now… street art is supported by some of the most signiﬁcant museums curators, galleries and collectors, thus becoming less of an outsiders club and more of a hugely signiﬁcant force at a time when the art world is hungry for something more than references to the past. …. says Robert Fontaine, Gallery Director
