Sidecore is a joint effort of the local post-graffiti artists to reclaim the ground and boost the popularity of street influenced art in Japan. Despite their different aesthetics, all artists featured in the show agreed—it's time to change the preconception that street art is nothing but a graffiti on the wall. What gave Sidecore a much needed depth and made it stand out is participation of Katsuhiko Hibino, the artist who has championed urban art since early 1980s and advocates its importance ever since.
