Urban art has its origins in graffiti and other forms of artistic expression represented in street spaces, this term began to be used in the 90s. What begins as a transgression evolves into a means to communicate with vindictive content of social, political themes, and so on.
Graffiti, as a cultural movement, was born in New York in the 80's and is linked to the cultural heritage of Hip-Hop. In Spain, Juan Carlos Argüello, Muelle, from Madrid, is one of the pioneers in stamping his signature not only in Madrid but all over Spain.
