Graffiti as an art form is not new: Jean-Michel Basquiat raised the profile of street art in the early 1980s with his installations in SoHo and Los Angeles; more recently, British impresario Banksy has taken the practice to a new level. Closer to home, we've been noticing examples of graffiti adding an edgy note to interior (and exterior) spaces. Above: In the lobby of Soho House Berlin , a work in graffiti confirms your location.
