We are an eclectic group of professional urban and graffiti artists, who work in a variety of mediums and styles. Our roots are in aerosol arts, hip hop and street culture. We represent a local branch of an international movement, uniting Ottawa's street artists in an internally mentored collective designed to provide alternative outlets for expression, while raising awareness about the creative side of graffiti.
Ottawa Urban Arts was fortunate to work with The Food Network this summer on a mural for a new show called The Opener. Have a look at the finished result! Show airs November 23rd on the food network. Don't miss it!
