New art style from Anthony Marshall

Anthony Marshall, North East born artist has released a series of prints which he describes as ‘Urban Contemporary’.


The notion of 'Urban Art' developed from Street Art which is primarily concerned with graffiti culture. Urban Art represents a much broader cross section of artists and covers traditional street artists working in formal gallery spaces also those artists using more traditional media but with a subject matter that deals with contemporary urban culture and political issues.  It is now so popular that it has become the fastest growing art category in the World

Urban artists like Banksy have now gained mainstream status and have, in turn, propelled the Urban Art Scene into popular culture.

Because the urban arts are characterised by existing in the public space, they are often viewed as vandalismand destruction of private property. Even though sometimes this form of art leads to vandalism the creators do not see themselves as vandals.

Although urban art started at the neighbourhood level, where a lot of people of different cultures live together, it is an international art form with an unlimited number of uses nowadays. A lot of urban artists are travelling from city to city and have social contacts all over the world.


Anthony has produced a series of 10 pieces which explore the bright colours of Urban Contemporary Art. See the neon signs read the HD adverts. Our city environments are rapidly changing and where once there was dark and dismal you will now find a kaleidoscope of colour coming from shop window displays, electronic HD advertising signs and Neon lights, all designed to catch the eye and tell you a story.
