It's Temporary

Graffiti artists become famous by getting their art out on the streets. But the temporal quality of their work means at some point the art will be removed, covered up or fade away.

"No matter the medium, any work put up in the streets is temporary. That’s why I feel there is room for street art in galleries," Alec said.
