ArtRepublic is the avant-garde of the street art movement, going beyond beautification and highly curating a collection of the icons of the great street art movement. Offering artists new opportunities and resources to create boundary pushing work, filling voids in the art industry between gallery and museum. “I’m excited to see the ArtRepublic artists working in the city I grew up in”, says North Florida based Artist Shaun Thurston. ”Having always dreamed of our walls being covered in monumental artwork and I see that ArtRepublic is progressively helping to make these dreams come true. I’m honored to be included in the line-up of so many inspirational artists.”
