Graffiti art to be displayed in White House?

There may be street art hanging up inside the White House thanks to the British Prime Minister David Cameron’s gift to President Obama. In his first official visit to the White House, the Prime Minister presented a painting “Twenty First Century City” by Ben Eine, a familiar presence in the London street art and graffiti scene. In turn President Obama gave an Ed Ruscha signed lithograph of ” Column with Speed Lines.”

On his website Eine wrote:

So its been a weird day today, so much so i’ve decided to visit my website.
David Cameron has given one of my paintings to President Obama in an Art Swap.
