Street artists paint on the street, graffiti writers tag on walls and urban artists paint on canvass – right? Think again. The boundaries between these genres are blurring to create a new movement that echoes the punk ethos of anything goes. Artists grouped together under this "street" umbrella are not just spraying Bansky style stencils on walls. Some, like German duo Herakut, are highly skilled painters who create "photorealistic" graffiti with spray paint, others, like Tel Aviv artist Know Hope, are more craft-based.
