Banksy, Basquiat & More Must-See Street Art

Launch Slideshow

Daring and dynamic, Street Art has roots in a controversial past. Long-considered vandalism, it was during the 1970s and 1980s that artists including Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring revolutionized the aesthetic, bringing their individual styles to a fine art audience and leading the way for the next generation of artists that includes the likes of Banksy and Brazilian twins Os Gêmeos. This fall, Sotheby’s presents a rich array of Street Art works, by the pioneers of the style as well as the visionaries of today. Click ahead to view some of our favorites.
