Urban Spree Galerie proudly presents the Berlin release of the first monograph about Felix Gephart -« Auf Linie gebracht »-as well as a selection of his large-sized canvases.
Felix Gephart (b.1986 in Bochum, West Germany), started his way into the art world by practicing graffiti at a young age, and later formally studied art in Münster, Dortmund and at the New York School of Visual Arts.
His body of work is hard to categorize: inspired by the ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’ as well as the US underground comics world (Burns, Crumbs, Spiegelman..), he is a figurative artist, a satirical, newspaper & book illustrator, as well as a graffiti writer, whose work is often dark with some steampunk elements (à la Kevin O’Neill).
The monograph released by Kettler Verlag, presents all the facets of the artist: seemingly literary and old master-like drawings face murals, landscape representations, portraits and surrealist mythological creatures.
Vernissage: Friday November 22nd from 19:00.
Book signings in the presence of the artist.
Exhibition until Sunday, November 24th. 12:00-20:00
The book is also available in the Urban Spree webstore here.
