Street Art & Designer Toys

In the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, street art will take center stage for the first time in the fall of 2022. The exhibition is being realized with the support of Selim Varol from Düsseldorf, who has assembled what is probably the most extensive collection of urban art and designer toys. Graffiti, stencils, mosaics, stickers and collages, sculptures, performances, forms of communication guerrilla and “culture jamming”, with works by JR, Banksy, KAWS, Swoon, Shepard Fairey, Osgemeos, Herakut or Prune Nourry, among others, the exhibition encompasses every conceivable art discipline in public space.

The works, which are marked by social and consumer criticism and have their origins in the pop and skateboard culture of the 1990s, are just as relevant today as they were at the time of their creation, and their compilation illustrates the inexhaustible creative, playful and political potential of street art, designer toys and urban art.
