“The idea of BA Street Art Gallery is to support the local street art scene offering a new exhibition space for emerging as well as well-known artists,” says Fox-Tucker. “As well as dealing with commissions to paint canvases and artworks by some of the best known street artists in Argentina, Vault Gallery also offers smaller artworks for sale including prints and drawings that are affordable to street art enthusiasts and collectors alike.” The gallery plans to hold individual and group shows by different South American artists in the coming months.
BA Street Art Gallery is located on the lower floor of NYC Bar and Bistro at Nicaragua 6002 and corner of Arévalo in Palermo Hollywood. More information at [email protected] and at www.bavaultgallery.com
