The World of Felix Gephart

Felix-Gephart2

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.

Felix Gephart: Book Release and Art Show

Urban Spree Galerie proudly presents the Berlin release of the first monograph about Felix Gephart as well as a selection of his large-sized artworks.

Felix Gephart (b.1986 in Bochum, West Germany), started graffiti quite early, 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 underground comics world, he is a figurative artist, a satirical & newspaper illustrator, and graffiti writer, whose work is often dark with some steampunk elements (à la Kevin O’Neill).

WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY: A BERLIN GROUP SHOW

From 28.04 to 01.05, the Berlin-based art association THE ART UNION presents WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY, a group show featuring artworks by 58 Berlin based artists at the Urban Spree Galerie.

The title of the exhibition is a humorous reference to the official Gallery Weekend Berlin, which takes place at the same time. Urban contemporary art is one of Berlin’s defining characteristics, but will hardly be on display at the official Gallery Weekend whose official map doesn’t even cover the area where Urban Spree is located, albeit quite central. THE ART UNION aims to bridge this gap by presenting diverse artistic perspectives following the idea of ONE CITY – ONE WEEKEND – ONE GALLERY – 58 ARTISTS.

The exhibition WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY is thematically created along the lines of different subgenres and styles of this young genre of art in a non-representative way. The work of all the artists presented in this group show can be found in public spaces, as well as in galleries. Other binding elements are their global citizenship and their generational experience. While all the artists shown at WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY. are Berlin-based, not all of them are German. Some artists originate from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Chile, Japan and Canada, while others come from the Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Spain, Hungary, the USA and the UK. Apart from a few exceptions, all were born after 1980. The exhibition aims to display the richness of urban contemporary art in Berlin. Female artists will not be marginalized, but are in fact a vital part of the group show WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY.

About THE ART UNION

The non-profit association THE ART UNION is run by key players in the fields of art and culture with expertise in the communication of art, art funding and visual communication. Daily working practice has exemplified a gap between artists, their audience and the art market, which is difficult to overcome. THE ART UNION intends to build a bridge between these aspects and create formats to professionalize artists and initiate discourses within the scenes. The organization of exhibitions and participation in festivals are as much a vital part of the concept as are artist residencies, funding and exchange programmes.

THE ART UNION was founded in 2015 and will receive an entry in the National Register of Associations in the first half of 2016.
