Khoollect’s hotlist of Instagram graffiti artists & curators

Street art or graffiti? Urban painters have always divided opinions. What determines that this piece is art and that piece is vandalism? The legality of street art has always been in a constant state of flux with many artists hiding behind a mask, personified only by the character of their tag.

Did you hear about how Banksy might be Massive Attack? Scottish investigative journalist, Craig Williams plotted the locations of recent Massive Attack shows across the world on a map and reveals how they strangely happen to be where recent Banksy artworks arise.

Are you a believer? Or does this sound like a conspiracy to you? And more importantly, what constitutes street art to you? Let us know in the comments below.

Andy Morris’ feed is a beautiful stream of surreal figures in bright colours. Love how visceral these are in context – you can almost feel the texture of decaying paint.
