"There is a peculiar relationship between a mural - painted directly on the wall - and a picture that hangs on a wall, a painted wall is replaced by a piece of portable wall". Brian O'Doherty. Inside the White Cube. The Ideology of the Gallery.
Is it possible to consider street art that has moved to the gallery still being a street art? Also as many years ago murals turned to be an easel picture street art changing its format now and influencing gallery art. The pictures by the street artist Sergey Skramov presented at the exhibition was made first on the walls and only after was transformed into the works on canvas. It was important for us to show the mural in the environment together with easel pictures so the works are combined with the photos of the street works. Combining the techniques used by the street artists with the brush painting Sergey Akramov also present his own visual language. The torn reality of his pictures combines photorealistic painting with the esthetic of street lacerated billboards. Playing between photorealism and abstraction, street and gallery painting the artist manage to create his own language which is combining esthetic with very gentle social criticism of Russian reality.
