The Chiswick DFAS monthly lecture, this month is ‘Hidden Canvasses – Street Art and the City’, by Doug Gillen on Thursday 9 March 2at the Polish Centre, in King Street, Hammersmith in the Malinova Room at POSK.

There's more to the world of street art than Banksy. Hidden Canvasses is a beginner's guide to the biggest art movement since pop art. From train writing in New York to interactive technology that brings murals to life, the concept of un-commissioned public art is a very different beast to that which it once was.

Hidden Canvasses explores the key stages in street art's growth, examining the different elements and styles that comprise the scene with no rules. From the international superstars to the local underground heroes, you're guaranteed to leave knowing your Invader from your Aryz - and who knows you might even start looking at the world a little differently.

Doug Gillen is heavily involved in documenting the street art scene in London and abroad through his project Fifth Wall TV, and can offer a genuine insight into this world. Previously, Doug lectured for London Art and More, and when not filming he is an East End tour guide for Alternative London, specialising in culture and art.

The lecture commences at 8pm (with the ChDFAS private bar open from 7.00pm). Non-members £10 on the door.
