Urban art is something you can often find in public spaces, and it encompasses everything from graffiti and murals to stencils and installations. It's a genre that's often appreciated for its cultural commentary, and a special exhibition taking place at the Kyoto Kyocera Museum of Art is set to explore it in detail.
The Icons of Urban Art exhibition will include works from big names in the field, including Banksy, JR, Barry McGee, and Richard Hambleton, and will cover an incredible four decades of the street art movement.
Adult admission to the exhibition is priced at 1800 JPY.
The Kyoto City Kyocera Museum is located approximately 8 minutes on foot from Higashiyama Station, which is served by the Tozai Subway Line.
For those who plan to drive to the museum, it's located around 7 kilometers from the Meishin Expressway's Kyoto Higashi IC exit. There are paid parking lots nearby to the museum, but taking public transportation is recommended.
